How do we incorporate the needs of all cultures in our schools?


I was recently tasked with writing a research paper that demonstrates the cultural uniqueness of two minority cultures in my area. Then I am to outline multicultural strategies designed to include their cultures in my classroom. When I presented the Finish culture I was told that they are not a minority, because they are "White." Finish people make up a small portion of the local population, and in respect to the populations of Michigan and the U.S. they are far outnumbered by many minority groups. How can we be truly eliminate bias in the classroom if we don't recognize all cultures equally?
