The duty to eradicate racism and hate is not one to be solely laid at the feet of any single institution, including our school system. We all have a role to play and just as it is when it comes to the education of our children, in this effort, all must mean all.
Hate-filled, hurtful speech and/or actions have no place in our schools or in our community. However, only when we can acknowledge our progress as well as our pitfalls together will we create a true picture of where we are and where we must go.
There is an ancient Chinese proverb that says, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a simple step.” We are in the process of setting up that next step.
Our children and our communities are depending on us – all of us.
-George Arlotto, ED.D.
Why is Diversity Important in the Workplace?
Diversity in the workplace allows individuals from different backgrounds and with different perspectives to learn from each other. This diversity can assist in the development of new and innovative ideas and can allow an organization to have better relationships with the existing community.
