Description

One of the hallmarks of our nation is its diversity—cultural and religious. Yet, in Catholic elementary schools, diversity remains a challenge. Perhaps because of age old mindsets or because of increasing social conflicts, diversity is increasingly seen as a disadvantage. Parents and sometimes educators would rather have a similar clientele. This paper presents diversity as a promise and an opportunity for Catholic elementary schools. The task is gargantuan, but the fruit is even more desirable.
