Multicultural is a buzz word in all global business and it must become the standard in educational institutions as well. Our educational values are based on the respect and understanding of different cultures and different lifestyles in society and that is the model of education we seek to embody. With a naturally international environment at Canada Schools all students are fortunate to benefit from inter-cultural interaction; something which will benefit them now and into their adult life.
Culture, as a word, implies communities which unite around art, literature, tradition and a common language; something we work to apply in our schools. Ideally, every culture can exist with a society and at Canada Schools we model this attitude and this practice of tolerance and acceptance. Multicultural education and educational environments demonstrate for students that differences can be exciting, challenging and inspring. Charles Taylor, known for his work on multiculturalism, emphasizes in his description of the multicultural environment: “respect for and recognition of cultural identity is a very important and decisive humanitarian element”.
Multiculturalism is the characteristic of contemporary societies – we live in a global business world and we must live in a global educational system which encompasses people and learning from many different places and cultures. Our international education environment and our internationally accredited diploma ensures our students are always one step ahead.
