Homogeneity versus diversity in
schools
Our experience as a group:
• Being part of the group has been a multicultural
experience and a challenge.
• Dealing with different languages, different cultures,
different ways of thinking, different expectations.
• And everyone has learned, but maybe different
things.
• We have tried to find different solutions, some with
success and some without.

Ideas we discussed in our group:
A) Interculturalism from a individual perspective
• Look at all the individuals as human beings and equals
• Focus on strength instead of weakness
• Empowering individuals instead of discriminating them
• Look at each individual’s culture identity as a resource
for others and as an enrichment

Homogeneidad y
diversidad en educación
Homogeneity versus diversity in
schools
• Interculturalism is more than acquiring
knowledge of the other
• Learning from, not only learning about
others
• Our identity is built upon other's
identities
• Self-consciousness as a way of
learning

approaching the other

themselves discovering different way to meet
others

C) Interculturalism in a global perspective
• Create a global conscience
• Be aware of historical, economical, political
and religious background. Be aware of our
responsibilities.
• Immigrants considered as a resource instead
of just `people who need help´.
• To deal with racism we have to deal with
power and leadership social structures.
