School systems around the world have been searching for ways to help engender better interpersonal relations among all persons within their borders. Achieving this goal is difficult when students have had limited cross-cultural experiences. This reference book examines developments in multicultural education in 42 representative countries from around the world. Each chapter examines the history and structure of the school system in a particular country, and discusses efforts to promote multicultural education. Chapters cite current literature, and an extensive bibliography concludes the work.
