Throughout the country teachers and teacher educators are attempting to develop multicultural/anti -racist education in many areas of the curriculum. This paper presents work being done at Trent Polytechnic in the hope that it will offer issues for discussion and even guidelines for action. We accept that these examples are not extensive and well-developed but feel that such an important approach should be tackled now and widely debated as a matter of urgency. Perhaps, readers to this journal will contribute actual illustrations of successful work with pupils as well as continue the dialogue concerning the importance of the multicultural and anti-racist perspectives to CDT.
