Multicultural Education Plan of Action
The article by Keith has got some correlation with my personal perspectives on multicultural education (Ameny-Dixon, 2008). On my part, I have the sense and belief that different cultural communities or rather children in one class have got good and bad outcomes. I am surprised from the way can to understand the basics in this article as it has some implications that children with different colors account for a certain percentage in particular 30 % in most of the schools. Through my research, it has been an amazing thing that ethnic minority of students are considered to be disproportionally poor. I have observed and surprised by the fact that most of the schools having multicultural population have high rates of the dropouts. It true that the class with multicultural population will have different students having all sorts of disabilities since some students will be having slow thinking capacity based on the brought up background (Chou, 2007).
Some will be having the different perspective on education and its mandate of the teachers to collect all those minds and direct them to core fact in the school basis. It is challenging that when teaching these students, there should be the inclusion of the curriculum which includes all the students who are in that particular class. Items I will take with me into your classroom or school as an educational leader As a teacher, there are items that I will be responsible to have them with me before getting to the classroom or school with the multicultural population of the students. There are some factors that I will consider for choosing what to take with me. I am very sure that I will have some hard time with students since they will have a different overlook on thematic issues in class and even they will end have a developing negative attitude towards me.
In fact, that is what I fear so much in this field since I know my first approach will determine the attitudes develop on me. What I know and how I am going to do about it Based on the fact that I know I am ending to be a multicultural leader, and I have gained the relevant knowledge concerning the same, I am going to practice on good approaches to multicultural students. I will make sure I understand the background of each student and evaluate each ones capabilities merits and demerits and I am sure through the application of all the knowledge I have gained in the class I will be able to make it and become very qualified one on this.
One thing I have understood about becoming a multicultural leader, I need to study what each student desire and act upon them.
