You asked me what I thought were the characteristics of the multicultural school, income, wealth, occupation,education, Power, unemployed and homeless, working class, middle class, upper class, race and ethnic Inequality, gender inequality. What do you think? Am I right or wrong? Thank you for your help.
Here are a few sites on multicultural schools:
1. (a magnet school): http://bridgeport.ct.schoolwebpages.com/education/school/school.php?sectionid=7
2. (definition): http://www.edchange.org/multicultural/papers/caleb/multicultural.html
3. (part II of #2): http://www.edchange.org/multicultural/resources/school_transformation.html
4. (8 characteristics): http://www.intime.uni.edu/multiculture/school/characteristics.htm
Just to take the very first term you've listed, are you suggesting that income is a characteristic of a multicultural school? What would that mean - that a multicultural school has income? And if so, is that what you're trying to say? I don't think it is, is it? Or if you're describing the income of the pupils in such a school, do you mean high income, low income or a mixture of incomes? And is this different in a different type of school? If not, how would that characterize a multicultural school?
