Learning In And Out Of School In Diverse Environments

Abstract

"In this report, we have presented a rationale for the development of schools that prepare students for life-long learning that is life-wide and life-deep. In our technological and interdependent world (Friedman, 2005), productive workers and successful citizens must continue to learn throughout their lives. We have also described the racial, cultural, ethnic, and linguistic diversity within the United States and around the world, and the challenges and opportunities that diversity presents to schools and to nations. We presented and explicated four principles that will help educators to transform diversity into an asset by using the cultural and linguistic capital that students bring from their homes and communities to teach the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to be effective citizens in the United States and the world."
