About Multicultural Education

Multicultural education is the identification, selection and infusion of specific knowledge, skills and attitudes for the purpose of:

  • affirming the culture, history and contributions that shall include but not be limited to African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans; and
  • challenging and eliminating racism, prejudice, bigotry, discrimination and stereotyping based on race; and
  • valuing multiple cultural perspectives; and
  • providing all students with opportunities to “see themselves” in the educational environment in positive ways and on a continuing basis.

To promote and support multicultural education within Lincoln Public Schools, it shall also be the policy and practice of this District to create opportunities for all students to achieve academically and socially in an educational environment in which all students and staff understand and respect the racial and cultural diversity and interdependence of members of our society.
