Some Research Directions Ahead
Multiculturalism at school is an asset. It gives the school-to-work transition system a basis which to build on for credibly addressing organisations’ demand for diversity. Organisations have to take into account their clients’ and partners’ social and cultural diversity and need appropriate and trained personnel to deal with this. Multicultural schools provide authentic situations for building intercultural competence in the future workforce. In addition, multicultural schooling gives to socially and culturally diverse pupils and students a chance to benefit from the same education, reach comparable competences and finally fairly compete for the same professional and social positions.
