Multicultural Education and Multicultural Sensitivity

This paper tries to answer the question of what is multicultural education on the basis of two theories (Nieto 2008; Bennett 2007). Only a multiculturally educated teacher with developed multicultural competence can create a multicultural learning environment. The idea of intercultural dialogue is also mentioned, as it has been used often in the European Union since 2008, and its deficit of theoretical concept.
KEY WORDS: immigrant children, multicultural education, multicultural competence, intercultural dialogue
