Diversity and Citizenship Education: Global Perspectives

By James A. Banks | Go to book overview

the Chinese Nation” developed by Professor Fei Xiaotong (1999) is a meaningful attempt to bridge Chinese indigenous theory and Western multicultural education theory.

China's new curriculum reform plan has been developed under the influence of the international background and also has been stimulated by China's inner educational reform requirements. It is the biggest educational reform in the history of the People's Republic of China. While it is gradually approaching the tide of international development, it is also an exploration which seeks national educational unity and regional and ethnic diversity. With the progress of the new curriculum reform and the trend that more and more Chinese scholars are learning about Western multicultural educational theory and practice, more curriculum resources that reflect the minority ethnic cultures are added to the regular curriculum. The concept of citizenship education is becoming accepted by Chinese education.
