A review of the literature shows that most educators agree with two principles underlying most points of view with regard to multicultural education. These are: The right of children to identify with a particular culture within the broader context of Australian society, The need to educate all children not only towards a degree of tolerance and understanding of other cultures, but also to appreciate that it can be profitable to accommodate some of the points of view of other cultures.
