Based on a brief analysis, the text is dealing with identifying multiculturalism as an ideology related to neo-Marxism as well as postmodernism. Some of the fundamental features of postmodernism are represented by scepticism towards the truth and the end of great story-telling, plurality of discourses which are caused by our interpretation and their mutual incommensurable. In critical sociology (engaged, radical, or so-called new sociology), social events are explained by the distribution of power, resources, opportunities and property, and this unequal distribution reflects and maintains social inequality. It is possible to reflect these characteristics not only theoretically, but practically as well - looking at multicultural education, which is considered to be the modern educational tool of the multicultural society. This text is pointing out some of its drawbacks and dangers through the dimension of school change (curricular change not governed by the 'western view' and organizational change corresponding with principles of 'child-centred education' and pedagogical pragmatism) and society change (internally diversified society in which still diversity is being deepened). Moreover, it is showing its worthlessness based on incorrect understanding of goals of the humanities - Aristotle's orthos logos (R. Scruton).
