About the Book

It is the intent of this independent research project to point out that although society has made a tremendous leap since the 1964 Civil Rights Act; we can still do more to bring about a change in the way we view and educate other ethnicities, races, religions, and cultures of which we may have very limited understanding. By becoming responsive to these differences, such as, skin color, eye shape, speech/language, or even religious practice, we can help create, for our students, our schools, and ourselves a better understanding of educating others who are different. This is the root of charter schools. This independent research project (IRP) seeks to address diversity generically as the world of difference as an aspect in educational settings as opposed to our present school's inattentiveness to diversity
