This course explores a range of perspectives from diverse social, ethnic, cultural and religious groups in Australia and encourages students to consider the implications of such diversity for educational policy and practice. The course will challenge popular views of multicultural education as the celebration of diversity and consider the role of education in yielding transformational change and combating the negative effects of stereotyping, discrimination and prejudice.
