I have followed Louis Schmier for almost 10 years; in his blog this educator writes on teaching and learning, always weaving current day realities into the classroom experience. The latest post on diversity links the terror of the past week to events on a US campus in 2014 and to the nature of diversity on our university campuses. I share his approach about the diversity of thinking and the need to do more listening in contrast to proclaiming what is right or wrong through words, attitudes, and sadly with bullets.
