This workshop will focus on multicultural education in the context of the United States. It explores the diverse purposes of public schools, addressing issues of access, equity, social mobility, democratic equality, assimilation, and pluralism. The course acknowledges the challenges of achieving a better life through education, which has uneven outcomes for different groups, contributing to social inequality. Multicultural education aims to challenge discrimination and promote pluralism by providing attendees with tools to address inequities in schools and society.

Students will analyze and apply these tools through discussions, reflection, and analyses of schooling structures. The colloquium will emphasize the integration of theory and applied knowledge, fostering personal racial literacy development through assignments and critical discussions in both small and large groups.
