Caring About Other Children
August 31, 2017
Rather than admit a mistake, nations have gone to war, families have separated, and good people have sacrificed everything dear to them. Admitting that you were wrong is just another way of saying that you are wiser today than yesterday.

"It is time to care about the education of other people's children. Other people's children are or will be our neighbors. Other people's children – from almost anywhere in the United States and beyond – could end up as our coworkers. Other people's children are tomorrow's potential voters. How, what, and with whom they learn impacts us all..." wrote Arthur H. Camins in a recent Huffington Post article.

"In school – either by intention or by omission – children learn to make sense of the world around them. They learn how to treat other children and adults and how to regard others in the wider community. They learn whether or not they can participate in shaping their lives and that of others. They may or may not learn how to live, collaborate and respect all the different people whom they will inevitably encounter in their lives. We can't avoid it. What other people's children learn affects each of us."
