Abstract

The article presents a theoretical approach to the theory of multicultural education. The urgency and risk of multicultural education in the current political, social, cultural and economic conditions of Ukrainian society are indicated. The theoretical foundations of multicultural education and the content of key concepts are revealed through concepts: education, culture, values, tolerance, intercultural dialogue, diversity, cultural pluralism. Multicultural education challenges and rejects racism and other forms of discrimination in schools and society and accepts and affirms the cultural pluralism (ethnic, racial, linguistic, religious, economic, and gender among others). Multicultural education relates to the recognition of values, lifestyles, and symbolic representations. Multiculturalism has become a common paradigm in curriculum development at all levels of education in the US and Canada. In Ukraine, the tasks of multicultural education are addressed through ethnic education, civic, patriotic, linguistics and language education. It is noted that adopting a multicultural model of education places serious obligations on the education system and will require adaptation to new high standards and standards. As multiculturalism requires the promotion and preservation of diversity, it must be balanced against other measures aimed at achieving national consolidation. A promising area is an integrative approach to the interaction of multicultural, patriotic, civic and gender education of the student youth.
