Guide om ‘interkulturel uddannelse’ i folkeskoler i Irland
Title: ‘Intercultural Education in the Primary School – Enabling children to respect and celebrate diversity, to promote equality and to challenge unfair discrimination’
The aim of these guidelines is to contribute to the development of Ireland as an intercultural society based on a shared sense that language, culture and ethnic diversity is valuable.
These guidelines are designed to provide support for all the members of the school community, including teachers, school managers, support staff and parents – all those with a responsibility for and interest in primary education. It is of particular relevance to teachers, school managers, school support staff and policy makers.
The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment wishes to acknowledge the work of Dr. Roland Tormey and the Centre for Educational Disadvantage Research, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick in the development of these Guidelines.
