This paper examines the importance of developing multicultural curriculum to curb the raising racist trends in the word. Since September 11, there has been an upsurge of racist and religious extremism in different parts of the world. One proactive measure that might be taken toward racism is creating a classroom atmosphere to reduce prejudice through mutual dialogue between different races and religions. Students must be properly informed about racial problems and their colossal effects such as wars and ethnic clashes. Personal experiences of authors also provide solid examples of racist prejudices. The article ends with a conclusion that shows directions for teachers and school how to effectively address racist problems in their schools.
