In all societies, education is conceived as transmitter of knowledge, tradition and social values. In culturally diverse society, education should be multicultural that would be included in the school curricula. As long as education is for all people, individuals within diverse cultures should be given equal opportunity to learn. It should not only provide and transmit the cultural values of the dominant social group or community. In Ethiopia, the Awra Amba community has different social norms, values and culture that make them unique from other surrounding communities that share the broad Amhara culture. Because of their cultural difference and practice, cross-cultural misunderstanding arises and they are isolated and discouraged by the surrounding communities. This book provides an in-depth analysis of the cross-cultural experience between the Awra Amba and its surrounding communities in general and their children school experience in particular. This book is very useful to professionals in the field of educational anthropology, policy making, curriculum designing, or anyone else who is interested in education and diversity.
