dc.description.abstract For the past twenty odd years multicultural education has been a trend which has manifested itself worldwide. This is a unique kind of education which has been received with mixed reactions. It primarily concerns education in a school which is home to pupils of different cultures. In such a school there should be a sensitivity tot he cultures of all the different students and these students will have to learn to accept one another and to have respect for the culture of other students. Rightist critics maintain that multicultural education neglects the student's own culture and that separation is the best way of maintaining harmony in plural societies. Leftist critics maintain that ME does not address racism, which is at the core of educational inequality. In South Africa separate schools were government policy for approximately the last fifty years. There were separate schools and education departments for the different race groups. This all started to change with the De Lange report which was published in 1980. Since then the education policy of the government has undergone some vast changes and in effect all schools which receives any kind of subsidy from the government can allow pupils of any race group. It was said emphatically that race will no longer be a criterium for allowing a pupil to attend a certain school. There are some right wing organizations in this country that oppose this new education legislation vehemently. They want to keep their schools exclusively white and are very much up in arms over the government's proposals. In this study the extent of this opposition as well as the reasons for this opposition was researched. The policies of different organizations were studied and certain trends were established. en
