When the world is embroiled in war, racism, etc., it becomes imperative that we start educating our children about various cultures around the world so that they can repect each other without any prejudices.

 

India is arguably the oldest civilization on this planet. And with passage of time it has become culturally,Guest Posting linguistically, religiously and ethnically one of the most diverse countries of the world. With 35 States &
Union Territories and more than 200 languages, it can easily be termed as the cultural melting pot of the world. To maintain this cultural diversity, every aspect of our life should be taken care of. And, what is better than education to start with.

Multicultural education is the need of the hour, to make education really effective, and to ensure that the knowledge of India’s cultural diversity is available to all children in India. When the Indian constitution guarantees free and compulsory education to all children of the age of six to fourteen years, it ensures that the cultural ethos of a great civilization passes on and on. At present, Indian children, depending on their family’s status and wealth, attend one of the two types of schools: Private funded schools or Government funded schools. But the curriculum in both types of schools, predominantly chartered by the central government and guided by the constitution of India, is basically pluralistic in nature. Thus, the main goal of multicultural education is quality education for all its children. It can be better understood from the National Curriculum Framework (2005) for the multicultural education in India, which focuses on the following:

  • Strengthening national education system for a pluralistic society.
  • Reducing the curriculum load.
  • Systemic changes in tune with curricular reforms.
  • Curricular practices based on the values enshrined in the Constitution, such as social justice, equality and secularism.
  • Ensuring quality education for all children.
  • Building a generation committed to democratic practices, values, sensitivity towards gender justice, etc.
  • Multilingual character of Indian society as a source for the enrichment of school life.

An understanding of the different facets of our culture, which certainly involves languages and traditions, makes a student groom into an adult, well aware of our cultural plurality, its relevance and importance in the present day context. It makes him knowledgeable enough to respect others’ point of view as much his own.
