Literature review: Diversity problem for Education

This “Ten Problems for Education in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. funding, 
  2. safety,
  3. technology,
  4. standardization,
  5. teachers,
  6. lifelong learning,
  7. diversity,
  8. creativity,
  9. accreditation,
  10. new trends.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

7 Diversity

THE PROBLEM — Inclusive education should foster understanding, acceptance, collaboration and tolerance, and generate openness towards others, and towards their characteristics and diversity. Current efforts towards inclusion are impeded by a lack of understanding of inclusive education and frequent misappropriation and co-opting of the term.

CONCLUSIONS — A recent, international report shows the unparalleled power of public education to tackle growing inequality and bring us closer together. As new audiences of learners are exposed daily to intelligent learning environments through mobile devices and ubiquitous Internet access, significantly different challenges to the goal of personalized education exist. Developing the potentials of both children with special needs in education and society at large should start from a human-rights-based approach. On average, students in socioeconomically and racially diverse schools, regardless of a student’s own economic status, have stronger academic outcomes than students in schools with concentrated poverty. Among scientific fields, computer science is the only one in which the percentage of women undergraduates has decreased since the 1980s. Most of the students with special needs in Turkey watched lessons on TV during the COVID-19 pandemic process and very few attended online courses. During the COVID-19 pandemic, universities recognized that failure to maintain access to classes would halt tuition-based income if face-to-face learning was the only provision. Schools and programs of public health in the United States have engaged in cross-sector collaborations to aid the COVID-19 response. The possibility of Nigeria as a country to achieve inclusive education at present time is pessimistic and skeptical. Education provided under the scope of intercultural education on the ethnocentrism levels has a positive impact on the ethnocentrism levels of prospective teachers.
