The Power of Multicultural Education Summit: Improving Student Performance Outcomes
A Summary Report of the Multicultural Education Summit, June 3, 2022
Hosted by The Julian Samora Research Institute, Michigan State University
The purposes of the statewide summit The Power of Multicultural Education were three-fold: 1) Introduce the North Star Alliance for Justice as a statewide, multiethnic organization promoting inclusive, equitable, and socially just Michigan; 2) Promote understanding and the importance of multicultural education throughout public education in Michigan. Multicultural education improves public education curricula by including throughout the schooling process the histories, accomplishments, and perspectives of different populations in the country. The view is that inclusion gives voice, promotes a sense of belonging, and a sense of purpose to all students.
