Since early American history, schools (i.e. Universities), like society, have addressed cultural diversity in different ways. A diverse organization is one that values the difference in people. Diversity in universities ought to be very much considered in today’s day not only to make things diverse but in order for us students to encounter and give students the opportunity to experience and encounter different things outside of what they are normally accustomed to. When students are put all together in one classroom in order to learn at school, they are not only learning from the school teachers alone, but they also learn from each other. “I pay the schoolmaster but’tis the schoolboys that educate my son.”(Ralph Waldo Emerson, p.118 what role should diversity play in college and University Admission policies?) What Waldo meant by this was that the teachers are not the only ones who students learn things and encounter different people and their different perspective which gives and teaches them that their own ways and ideas are not the only ones out there and it makes them more open minded. In many cases, there are cases in which diversity in schools are not very much supported. “Students, faculty members, and administrators all responded to increasing racial diversity by registering increased dissatisfaction with the quality of education and the work ethic of their peers. Students also increasingly complained about discrimination”( Stanley Rothman, Is diversity overrated?, page 123) What Rothman is trying to say is that when diversity was brought into a university there was much negative feedback from not only the students but the administrators of the school expressing not only negativity but also claiming it caused much of a distraction because since it was diverse there were more people turning against their peers and being very discriminant towards each other; however in a way it could be a positive thing, “ that consensus reflects the reality that today’s students must be prepared to live and work n a global economy and a multiracial world."(Lawrence H. Summer and Laurence H. Tribe, p.121). With that being said, that is what a diverse atmosphere for students while being in school ought to teach them and have them get accustomed to being around people who aren't the same as them and for them to know that this world has to come be a place where we work together and are around each other. “As the district court emphasized, the law school’s admissions policy promotes, “ cross-racial understanding,” helps break down the racial stereotypes, and enables [ students] to better understand persons of different races.”(Sandra Day O’ Connor, p.133) “The freedom of a university to make its own judgments as to education includes the selection of its student body” (Sandra Day O’ Connor, p.133) When it comes to everyone enrolling in a university diversity plays a major role; however the universities get to decide who gets in and who doesn’t based on a certain criteria.”
In terms of diversity curriculum, I am going to focus on bilingual education and ESL.
According to Title III requirements, any district
It is important that you understand the cultural diversity of the pupils
within the school and particularly those you are supporting. You will
then be able to help pupils to make sense of their learning by making
connections to their own lives. Your role may include providing pastoral
support to individual children. Understanding and taking account of their
background and culture is essential for you to build eff ective relationships

Diversity is one of the most important things in my life. Throughout high school, I made a variety of friends. They were all from different parts of the world and they each had their own culture and beliefs, They helped me develop into a tremendously diverse personality. My peers taught me to always strive to get the whole story of any situation.
The community I lived in was remarkably open during my high school career. I felt that no matter what I wanted to do, I would be accepted by many people…
However, diversity does not necessarily mean fairness in respect to opportunities and privileges for these various ethnic groups.
I am a student at Stuyvesant High School, one of the eight specialized high schools in New York City. These schools are the most elite in the city, and I believe that it is a privilege to attend one. In order to secure a seat in this school, children must take an exam called the SHSAT. According to a recent news report, black and hispanic attendance in these schools have…

Student rights that all schools should have our freedom of speech, Diversity, and Inclusivity lastly, is disability rights. If they care about us they should be letting us have these rights. They say no just to say no.
Do students really have freedom of speech in school? Many students get in trouble for being honest because to the teachers it seems that students are being mean. All throughout human race our parents tell us “don't say that,that’s mean” but were just telling the truth, that was…

avoid situations where the child feels that is not supported, that is putted aside, that their needs are being ignored, that is inferior to others or is disappointed with our attitude. To be able to challenge discrimination we need to know well the school policy, procedures and practice. So, if we are confident about what is good practice, we’ll be able to deal better with discriminatory situations.
Discrimination can be intentional or due to lack of understanding and knowledge. Therefore, we should…
Cultural diversity as an issue wasn't even on the radar of most private school communities until the 1990s. To be sure, there were exceptions, but for the most part diversity was not at the top of the list of priorities back then. Now you can see genuine progress in this area.
The best evidence that progress has been made is that diversity in all its forms is now on the list of other issues and challenges facing most private schools. In other words it is no longer a detached issue requiring resolution…
