Multicultural Education and the Civic Mission of Schools

This paper discusses key elements of current multicultural challenges of the traditional civic mission of schools. It appraises these challenges to suggest their strengths and weaknesses--contributions and pitfalls--with regard to fundamental U.S. principles of democracy endorsed by both multicultural challengers and traditional civic educators. Finally, it suggests how multicultural education and civic education can be conjoined in the mission and core curriculum of schools to support genuinely the principles and practices of democratic citizenship.
