Elementary school to integrate diversity education
Syracuse University Professor of Inclusive Education Mara Sapon-Shevin, PhD, told about 400 parents at Birch School in Merrick, N.Y., that teaching their children about diversity is essential to ensure fulfillment during their school years and to prepare them for modern adulthood. Her presentation served as a public introduction of the Merrick School District's emerging Diversity Education Program, which the district began developing last year. Superintendent Ranier Melucci said the program's goal is to integrate diversity issues into existing classes from kindergarten through sixth grade.
