Towards a Critical Multicultural Literacy

Theory and Practice for Education for Liberation


Danny Weil

Towards a Critical Multicultural Literacy claims that, in a pluralistic society, education should affirm and encourage the quest for self-examination through social transformation by creating relevant problem-posing activities that allow students to confront through reasoning, the challenges offered by everyday life's diverse reality. Dr. Weil specifically examines traditional views of education, critical-thinking advocate views of education, critical-pedagogy advocate views of education, and multicultural views of education as they historically and currently exist both in theory and in practice.
