Americans are a diverse collection of faiths, creeds, and colors. Intolerance has, unfortunately, always been part of the American experience. Schools have always been vulnerable to this societal dilemma, and students sometimes have been – and still are – the victim of bias-related incidents. Still, it is in school where change can begin.

As the National Association of School Psychologists’ (NASP) handout, that is titled A National Tragedy: Promoting Tolerance and Peace in Children: Tips for Parents and Schools, suggests, “Adults can help children understand the importance of treating all people with dignity and not judging groups of people for the actions of a few.”

Teachers are in a wonderful position to help young people understand that our nation is strong because of our diversity.
