Cultural diversity multiculturalism and inclusion

Module Cultural diversity, Multiculturalism and Inclusion and their Implications in Teaching INTRODUCTION Cultural diversity refers to the presence of different groups of people that have dissimilar origins as opposed to a situation where a specified population has people from a single historical background. In this approach, the distinct segments have to appreciate the morals, beliefs and societal constricts of a community since they have the liberties to reside in an area. Apparently, some of the educationalists propose that this approach should be engaged in the education sector. Nevertheless, multiculturalism refers to the upholding of the individual societies within a specified region, although the separate divisions form a nation (Grant 178). On the other hand, inclusion denotes the embodiment of different groups of people that have special needs. Apparently, the proposition to engage multiculturalism, cultural diversity and inclusiveness in the education sector has not been implemented due to the divergent implications that have been expressed. Thus, this paper will focus on the positive and negative implications that have been mention in concern to the subject.
Positive Impact
Firstly, it is noted that to nurture human cohesion, all individuals need a glimpse of the historical background of all the groups that reside in an area. For example, America is considered one of the most diverse nations in the world because it has people from diverse origins. Notwithstanding, it would be prudent to engage all the population to afflict a unified society. Secondly, the inclusion of such approaches will guarantee that people will comprehend their diversity, which has not been acceptable in the past. Through such an understanding, different societies will express peaceful coexistence in the possible manner. Thirdly, the available documentations express the impressive performance of particular races. However, with the inclusion of other individuals with successful innovation, all the learners will appreciate the diversity of all the races (Grant 179). For example, the policy makers need to embrace African American who fought against the social ills as well as the whites that struggled for economic sustenance. Fourthly, the approach will enhance comprehension of collaborative methodology that expresses the concerns of all the groups that live in the region. Lastly, the execution of such an approach will lead to multicultural equity in the state. Evidently, some of the minority groups are not given identical treatment as the other majority groups, and this affects the livelihood of the marginal population. Thus, the inception of the prospect will enhance diversity, equity, cohesion and understanding between the societies of a country.
Negative Consequences
Although positive sentiments have been expressed about multiculturalism, inclusiveness and cultural diversity in education some implementers have contrasting opinions. To begin with, it is noted that the population has a majority of the marginal groups, and the educationalists may not exhaustively study the divergence of the groups. As such, some of the groups may not be considered in the curriculum. In fact, this might digress the cohesion of the society to live as a unified group. Nevertheless, the historical ills that have been directed to other communities may be expressed in the studies. Resultantly, it may spark renewed hatred between different segments of people, and this could further disunite the population (Grant 179). Further, the implementers may have a hard time to plan and incept useful policies to ensure the methodology is productive. Similarly, the evaluation of the project can be a hard task as they may not consider all the avenues that need to be determined. Lastly, the issue of slavery and humanity crimes may be highlighted, and this could spark hatred directed towards a specified race. Conclusively, the policy makers are divided due to stalemate in the approach that should be used. Evidently, the positive and negative implications have made it difficult to implement the proposal.
