Latoya A Way September 6, 2015 EDU-230 Kimberly Werking Issues in Multicultural Education In my community and today’s classrooms, students and teachers are faced with many challenges. The challenges that they face include race, ethnicity and cultural diversity. In my community classrooms are increasing in size and many of the students have disabilities or developmental delays. Because there is a diverse composition in the classroom, there are many challenges and opportunities for educators. By utilizing effective practices and having the support of, families, colleagues, local and the global community, teachers will be able to create a classroom that is diverse and meets the needs of all children in that classroom. Teachers, families, and the school board are all part of the problem when it comes to being culturally aware in schools and the classrooms. Teachers have to be willing to adjust their style of teaching to fit the needs of each student in their classroom. Children come from all walks of life and do not learn the same. It is important that teachers adapt to the cultural needs of everyone in the class. In the past ten years more teachers from different cultures have entered the teaching program (Robinson, & Clardy, 2011). Even with more teachers the problem is a lot of teachers are not educated in the different cultures. . If teacher education programs were successful in educating teachers for diversity, we might not have such a reluctance by teachers (Zeichner, 1992). Children come from all walks of life and do not learn the same. It is important that teachers adapt to the cultural needs of everyone in the class. Families are a part of the problem; because they are not always willing to accept that their child will be learning things from a multicultural perspective. The school board is more concerned about cutting costs and filling up classrooms, rather than providing the necessary trainings and tools that teachers need in order to be successful in creating an environment that is enriched with diversity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
