Multiculturalism in Teacher Education Institutes - The Relationship between Formulated Official Policies and Grassroots Initiatives
The current study examined the multicultural policies advocated and the actual practices in two teacher education colleges in Israel. The main findings reveal a gap between multicultural discourse and policies in two colleges, as manifested in the activity patterns of both teacher education colleges. Furthermore, the difference between the colleges in terms of multicultural discourse and practice is related to the difference in the colleges’ organizational structures and target populations. The authors recommend that there is room for grassroots developments. Finally, the authors recommend that every teacher-education institute in any multicultural country must include the topic of multiculturalism in the curricula.
