BECAUSE WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT HAS BECOME INTEGRATED WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF ETHNIC, RACIAL AND RELIGIOUS GROUPS --IT HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT THAT WE ALL DEVELOP A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE VARIOUS ETHNIC GROUPS THAT MAKE UP THIS SOCIETY.
Our ethnicity (cultural heritage) is part of who we are as individuals and unless you were raised with no sense of cultural heritage, your ethnicity has some impact on how you see the world and how the world sees you. To discount a person's ethnicity in dealing with them on a personal level is to ignore a part of that person's human being-ness.
Understanding cultural differences helps us to develop better relationships, to improve communication and to manage business affairs in more effective ways. Each culture has its own style of behaviors--- showing emotions, expressing humor, listening , & learning. We need to begin to understand these cultural differences in order to be more effective educators, managers, and leaders….and to be able to solve human relations conflicts. Culture shapes our attitudes, values, learning-styles, and behavior. It effects the way we communicate with each other, the way we negotiate, the way we buy and sell, and the way we handle schooling.
WHAT IS CULTURE ?
CULTURE = the totality of socially transmitted behavior patterns, arts, styles, music, beliefs, institutions, and all other products of human work and thought. These patterns, traits, and products considered as the expression of a particular class, community, ethnic group or population.
For example: Cultures express themselves in these forms:
"Chinese Food"...."Latin music" ... or
Differences in value systems, communication & language styles attitudes may effect schooling, habits, relationships, and sales from one culture to another.
PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN THE U.S. ARE MORE RACIALLY SEGREGATED THAN EVER !
Schools in the United States are more segregated today than they have been in more than four decades. Millions of non-white students are locked into “dropout factory” high schools, where huge percentages do not graduate, and few are well prepared for college or a future in the US economy.
According to a new Civil Rights report published at the University of California, Los Angeles, schools in the US are 44 percent non-white, and minorities are rapidly emerging as the majority of public school students in the US. Latinos and blacks, the two largest minority groups, attend schools more segregated today than during the civil rights movement forty years ago. In Latino and African American populations, two of every five students attend intensely segregated schools. For Latinos this increase in segregation reflects growing residential segregation. For blacks a significant part of the reversal reflects the ending of desegregation plans in public schools throughout the nation. In the 1954 case Brown v. Board of Education, the US Supreme Court concluded that the Southern standard of “separate but equal” was “inherently unequal,” and did “irreversible” harm to black students. It later extended that ruling to Latinos.
The Civil Rights Study shows that most severe segregation in public schools is in the Western states, including California—not in the South, as many people believe. Unequal education leads to diminished access to college and future jobs. Most non-white schools are segregated by poverty as well as race. Most of the nation’s dropouts occur in non-white public schools, leading to large numbers of virtually unemployable young people of color.
