Abstract:

The awakening consciousness of the existence of different cultures, religions, tribes, races nationality, language, class, gender, sexual orientation has led to the need for co-existence. Multicultural education has been prescribed as an antidote to negative prejudices. Therefore, the study seeks to explore the perspectives and dimensions of multicultural education adopted by selected countries. The objective of the study entails interrogating the perspectives and dimensions employed by different countries in multicultural education. The research employed a comparative research design. The tools used to collect data were documents from the library, desktop research and document checklist. Data were analyzed through content analysis and presented through narration. The study found out that different countries have different perspectives in terms of implementing multicultural education. The dimension used seem to be universal however in most countries there are no structures of how multicultural education is delivered. It is notable that multicultural education still remains a grey area that needs a lot of interventions especially in the training of teachers.

Keywords: Multicultural Education, Perspectives, Dimensions, Different Countries.
