Interkulturelle Erziehung geht nicht nur von einem Kulturbegriff aus und meint nicht nur die geistige Kultur einer Gesellschaft, sondern auch die Alltagskultur, also den tagtäglichen Umgang der Menschen miteinander. Dabei orientiert sie sich an den universellen Menschenrechten, versucht die Gleichheit aller Menschen und Kulturen anzuerkennen. Der Terminus entwickelte sich aus der Ausländerpädagogik. Einsicht und Erfahrung zeigten, dass ehrenamtliche Bemühungen in ‘Hausaufgabenhilfen’ keine angemessene Hilfe zur Förderung und Integration ausländischer Kinder darstellte und führte zu Veränderungen in diesem Bereich. Zum einen kam es zu einer Erweiterung des Arbeitsfeldes sowohl im Kindergartensektor als auch im Umgang mit ausländischen Erwachsenen. Zum anderen kam man zu der Erkenntnis, dass Ausländerpädagogik keine Sonderpädagogik für Ausländer sein könne. Vielmehr müsse man sich auch an die ‘Inländer’, also die Deutschen wenden, da viele Aufgaben nur im dialogischen Miteinander zu bewältigen wären. Da der Terminus ‘Ausländerpädagogik’ diese Inhalte nur ungenügend und missverständlich widerspiegelt, werden heute zunehmend die synonymen Begriffe ‘interkulturelle Erziehung’ und ‘interkulturelle Pädagogik’ verwendet.

In the World Library of Educationalists, international experts themselves compile career-long collections of what they judge to be their finest pieces - extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings, major theoretical and/practical contributions - so the world can read them in a single manageable volume. Readers will be able to follow themes and strands of their work and see their contribution to the development of a field, as well as the development of the field itself. James A. Banks is considered the "father of multicultural education" in the U.S. and is known throughout the world as one of the field's most important founders, theorists, and researchers. In this book, Banks has compiled a career-long collection of 21 of his most significant articles, book chapters, and papers which show the evolution of his research and scholarship over nearly four decades as well as the evolution of the field of multicultural education. This collection shows how the growth of the field has mirroredBanks' development as a scholar, teacher, and researcher. A specially written Introduction gives an overview of the author's career and describes the personal, professional, and social context for his selections. Banks describes how his personal journey as an African American who came of age in the American South during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and 1970s influences his research and teaching and is a significant source of his commitment to social justice research and work. Multicultural education in the U. S. emerged out of the Black Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and 1970s. The focus of the field has expanded from Black Studies, to ethnic studies, to multicultural education, and to diversity and citizenship education within a global context. The eight parts into which the book is divided reflects the evolution of Banks' scholarship as well as the development of the field of multicultural education: ?Black Studies and the Teaching of History ?Research and ResearchIssues ?Teaching Ethnic Studies ?Teaching Social Studies for Decision-Making and Citizen Action ?Multiethnic Education and School Reform ?Multicultural Education and Knowledge Construction ?The Global Dimensions of Multicultural Education ? Democracy, Diversity, and Citizenship Education The last part of the book consists of a selected bibliography of the publications by Banks.

Dabei wird in Diversity ein Potenzial gesehen, das es nicht zuletzt aus Gründen der Effizienz zu nutzen gilt.
