After the Wilders trip, multicultural Australia can take a bow

After the Wilders trip, multicultural Australia can take a bow | HSIE K-6 resources | Scoop.it
Our liberal toleration of the Dutch MP's vile views is a triumph.
Paris Esposito's insight:

A great example of a recent multicultural controversy that has taken place within Australia.

This article is benefical as it acknowledges that different cultures will always have differernt views and ways of interpreting situations but through a right balance between solidarity and diversity Australia will continually reaffirm the success of multicultural country. This is something that all educators should aim to achieve in their classroom and promote whilst studying diverse cultures.

Paris Esposito's insight:

Australian Bureau of Statistics is a critical resource for teachers in understanding cultural diversity in Australia as it is the most accurate count of the Australian population.

Although this information may be too drawn out for stage three students it is satisfactory for teachers who aim to gain a clear understanding of Australia's diverse culture, which can often be difficult to explain.
