Too little diversity in our education system

If only schools could teach us what other cultures can. We would probably live in a much more peaceful world. If schools would teach us the respect you gain once you become friends with people from all over the world, we would live in such a nice community. Where everyone has a different background, where everyone lives together and learns from his/her neighbors. Sounds … Read More Too little diversity in our education system
