    Explanation
    Sleeter and Grant believe that the most effective approach to multicultural education is one that is both multicultural and social reconstructionist. This approach recognizes the importance of acknowledging and valuing diverse cultures and perspectives within the education system. It also aims to challenge and transform the social structures and systems that perpetuate inequality and injustice. By combining these two elements, multicultural and social reconstructionist education can create a more inclusive and equitable learning environment that promotes social change and empowers marginalized groups.

It does not require physical fitness exams for all students or provide more technology for public schools.

    • A.

      Allowing parents to decide between assimilation and pluralism for their own children

    • B.

      Nothing but academics.

    • C.

      “Americanizing” all children of difference as quickly as possible.

    Correct Answer
    C. “Americanizing” all children of difference as quickly as possible.
    Explanation
    In the Anglo-Conformity or Assimilationist ideology, the belief is that schools should focus on "Americanizing" all children of difference as quickly as possible. This means that the emphasis is on assimilating these children into the dominant American culture, rather than allowing parents to choose between assimilation and pluralism for their own children or solely focusing on academics. This ideology promotes the idea of a unified American identity and discourages the preservation of cultural diversity within the education system.

    Two approaches to difference in public education, based on two different ideologies, were

    • A.

      Right and wrong

    • B.

      Conservative and liberal

    • C.

      Assimilationist and pluralist.

    Correct Answer
    C. Assimilationist and pluralist.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "assimilationist and pluralist." This is because the question is discussing two different approaches to difference in public education based on different ideologies. The terms "assimilationist" and "pluralist" represent two contrasting ideologies. Assimilationist ideology promotes the idea of assimilating diverse individuals into a single dominant culture, while pluralist ideology supports the recognition and acceptance of diverse cultures and identities within society. Therefore, the terms "assimilationist and pluralist" accurately represent the two different approaches being discussed.

This means that the court declared that segregating schools based on race, even if the facilities were equal, was inherently discriminatory and violated the rights of African American students. The ruling was a landmark decision in the Civil Rights Movement and paved the way for desegregation in schools.

    • A.

      . the high immigration rates from non-European countries

    • B.

      High birthrates among nonwhite populations in the United States.

    • C.

      All of these

    Correct Answer
    C. All of these
    Explanation
    The shift in demographics in our country can be attributed to both the high immigration rates from non-European countries and the high birthrates among nonwhite populations in the United States. Immigration from non-European countries has contributed to the diversification of the population, bringing in people from different cultural backgrounds. Additionally, the high birthrates among nonwhite populations indicate a growing population of individuals with non-European heritage. Therefore, both factors play a role in the shift in demographics.
