Through all the institution's process and products, multicultural education stresses respect for and understanding of cultural diversity and individual uniqueness. Multicultural education is not a supplementary area, rather, it is a process and philosophy with ideas that are broad and integrative. However, some see that patterns of resegregation have returned to some elementary and secondary schools since academic ability groupings often result in the separation of students by race and class (Edwards, 1991). It is difficult to promote multicultural education if the students are separated. Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a collaborative learning strategy that can help facilitate multicultural education as well as assist students in developing learning strategies that they can use to earn higher grades and persist longer in college.
