People are different, and the difference can strengthen society in many ways, because the diversity provides opportunities to learn and grow from one another. Not having diversity in society, everybody would be the same. There would be no differences and I think it would be boring. There would be no opportunity to explore different backgrounds and cultures. Diversity gives people the advantage of getting to know one another, and share different experiences that makes life interesting.
The increasing diversity of the United States requires a pluralistic view that recognizes the mutual benefits and contributions of multiple cultures of the country (Klein & Chen, 2001). Though there are several benefits, diversity creates unique problems that contribute to problems faced by the United States. Diversity may create ethnocentrism and this in turn leads to biased attitude and racist behavior towards other people. There may be the inability of an individual to regard another ethnic group as equal or valid members of the society. Many of the social problems witnessed in the United States can very easily be attributed to the diversity that exists in the country.
In a school there are many other people to consider as your team rather than just the people you work with closely on a daily basis. Knowing and executing your role as an individual to the best of your ability allows you to be a valued member of any team. It is also essential to know the roles of those around you. This allows you to fully understand and support each other. By working as a team you can gain valuable knowledge from those who are more experienced than you, but it also allows you to suggest newer and fresher ways to approach learning.
Once this reluctance is overcome our society will improve dramatically. It is a proven truth that the betterment and improvement of any social system depends upon the depth of the relationship which its individuals enjoy. Moreover, educating students about diverse cultures can help them understand their own culture in a better manner. Contrasting their own trends and ideas with others, is a very good way of understanding that what is better and why. The juvenile minds will not only learn about other cultures, but will also get closer to their own culture.
It is therefore important that you examine your own attitudes and values to consider how these may impact on the way you work with children and young people. Children listen intently to others around them, both adults and other children and soak up all information given to them. The school must make sure that the children are surrounded with positive messages about their peers and their own importance in society. All children are individuals and have individual rights; however they are not the same. It is the policy, currently, to include all children in mainstream education so long as the curriculum can be adapted to suit an individual pupils needs.
This all promotes that everyone is equal but recognising that everyone has difference but should still be treated the same. You can support others to promote diversity, equality and inclusion by encouraging others to embrace difference, rather than rejecting it, just because it is not familiar to you through reducing fear and anxiety, broadening experience, increasing understanding and encouraging collaboration sharing thoughts and ideas with a wide range of people. All this will help support others.
Tolerance is what allows us to live in harmony in a country with people of different religions, who support other political tendencies, which have a different sexual condition, etc. In addition to the quote, "live and let live”, the tolerance that should be promoted is one that is active and leads to solidarity. The active tolerance should be seen as the interest in understanding others, and help them pursue their life projects without receiving anything in return. In order to live in a better world, our mission is to help promote tolerance in ourselves, in our families, in schools, in the workplace, and in the
Everyone has an opinion and different beliefs on almost every topic, in which one of the most controversial topics is adoption. In adoption, people believe that race matters due to their ethical or cultural beliefs; however race does not matter because every child needs a loving home. Additionally, studies of multiracial families show that kids are more aware of their culture, as well as they are more like the community around them, then their ethnic background. There are many adoption agencies, and others with the beliefs that kids need to be with parents of the same ethnicity because it would provide the child with more cultural awareness, as well as it would prevent children from the danger and backlash they might get from others. In
We are all one race and that is, human. Everyone can benefit from the social construction of race by understanding what the impact of events and change has done to our society and that it ultimately affects our society. 4. What are the benefits to this group? The benefits of a multiracial group or identity is that one can stand their ground and will be able to reject social pressures to identify with one race or another, a multiracial group or identity is better equipped to assimilate into racially mixed environments and be able to feel a sense of fitting in, which would be beneficial in one’s psychological and social well being, it also allows one to have different cultural mind sets, and picking an identity with one race or another would ultimately put one on the
Cultural Diversity in America Cultural diversity is so extremely important in our society. I have learned just how important education about different cultures, religions, and people really are. This class has opened my eyes to the fact that we are still fighting this battle against prejudices and discrimination in many different areas of our society; racially, gender, religious, and sexual orientation. I have found it quite shocking that so many minorities still are treated “less than” in places like jobs, housing, and just our in society in general. I have learned just how important it is to raise children un-biased, because they are our future leaders.
