Multicultural Education in a Pluralistic Society & Exploring Diversity Package (7th Edition) (Paperback)
by Donna M. Gollnick, Philip C. Chinn

Course Description per Graduate Bulletin, St. John’s University, 2004 – 2006

Considers the collaboration of school student, family, and community resources in the development of diverse views on schooling.


Course reflection and synthesis:


This course will always be pertinent to educators as well as anyone living in the United States.  Topics in multicultural education includes a vast amount of perspectives and lenses that people view each other including colleagues, students, community members and administration.  As an adjunct professor at Suffolk County Community College, I teach a course called The Exceptional Child (PC63).  In that course, many of the same legislative outcomes are covered.  The landmark court case “Brown vs. The Board of Education” concluded that separate is not equal.  PL 94-142 Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) was created as a direct result of this legislation.  Students must be given an education in the least restrictive environment (LRE) which fosters learning in the most inclusive environment.
