We must create the opportunity and structure for our students to become critical thinkers. We absolutely have to provide them with a variety of viewpoints and experiences from our storied past. Only with this added perspective do we truly have a chance to continue to build to a more perfect and inclusive ideal.
How can we truly solve a problem without looking at all the factors in a critical way? We need to build a shared lexicon that allows for thoughtful and nuanced discussions on how to mitigate our past and the best way to build our future.
