This course will explore the goals and evolution of Indian Education for All (IEFA) within a multicultural education framework, and discuss how educators are best prepared to implement this transformative educational policy. It will examine the historical, political, and cultural forces that foster systematic disparities based on ascribed characteristics, and critically examines strategies for addressing such disparities. It highlights Montana’s constitutional commitment to the cultural heritages of American Indians which exemplifies the practical application of multicultural education.
