Questioning diversity : practices, discourses and the early childhood education profession


Expand view

This paper presents a review of the literature on diversity and difference and discusses the implications for early childhood education and education professionals. It shows how bureaucracies, administrations and a tendency to cultural normalization work toward assimilation rather than cultural transformation, while issues of gender, race, language, religion, social class and sexual preferences are relegated to the private sphere. Institutionalised pedagogy needs to be challenged by a pedagogy of whiteness, exposing the non-inclusive nature of educational practices, and creating a space for the complexities, richness and potential of diversity
