Ed Marquez on Multicucultural Education
What does Multicultural Education Mean to You?
Harvard's Graduate School of Education "Making Caring Common" project has as part of its mission statement the goal of "...a world in which children learn to care about others and the common good, treat people well day to day..." With the belief that these "that young people with these capacities will become community members and citizens who can strengthen our democracy, mend the fractures that divide us, and create a more caring, just world." This encompasses much of what Critical Multicultural Education embraces. Caring is an action word that upon reflection and (possibly change of heart/mind) should involve compassionate deeds of service and love.
