  • Celebrating Diversity in Our Schools: Education for Responsibility
    This paper proposes a conceptual model for celebrating student diversity through altering the roles, rules, and relationships among teachers, pupils, and the community and teaching two components of responsibility: accountability and flexibility. The paper first reviews three historical responses to diversity (marginalization, reform, and tolerance) and suggests that valuing diversity is a better approach.
