    • Abstract:
      This study aims to analyse the correlations between educational philosophy adopted by prospective teachers and their attitudes towards multicultural education. The research data were collected in September 2017 by administering "philosophical preference evaluation scale" and "prospective teachers' attitudes towards multicultural education scale" to prospective teachers. In conclusion, medium level negative correlations were found between attitudes towards multicultural education and modern philosophy of education whereas positive and significant correlations were found between postmodern philosophies of education and attitudes towards multicultural education. The findings obtained through regression analysis suggested that the regression model for predicting teachers' attitudes towards multicultural education through educational philosophies prospective teachers had adopted was statistically significant. Forty percent of the variation for attitudes towards multicultural education was explained by modern philosophies of education and postmodern philosophies of education-which were the sub-scales of educational philosophy.
