Intercultural Education

  • It includes teachings that accept and respect the normality of diversity in all areas of life.
  • It makes every effort to sensitize the learner to the notion that we have naturally developed in different ways.
  • It seeks to explore, examine and challenge all forms of "isms" and xenophobia, while promoting equal opportunity.
  • Intercultural education works to transform not only the individual but the institution as a metaphor and mechanism for the transformation of society.
