Cultural and Linguistic Diversity in Education

Go to the facet of the UNESCO Education Portal on cultural and linguistic diversity in education.

With a focus on promoting universally shared values and a culturally sensitive diversification of educational contents and methods, UNESCO is working to promote quality education as a fundamental right for all by addressing a broad range of themes, which include respect for cultural and linguistic diversity.

This facet of UNESCO's Education Portal provides a broad picture of approaches to education of children where multiple languages are spoken in the same community.

Note especially the position paper, "Education in a Multilingual World".
