So you'd rather people not be educated? That seems like it'd be worse.

Why would it work? That's fairly straightforward. Educated people are far less likely to be hateful, bigoted, racist, and violent. This is because they're far less fearful of what isn't like them.

As for how, I don't really have a specific tolerance curriculum laid out and ready to demonstrate at any given moment. I suppose more time could be spent encouraging respect for other cultures at young ages in our public school systems. There's a lot that could be done.

We had a neat program in my elementary school called "Around the World". Each classroom was dedicated to a country/place, and the few representatives in that class were either from there or were directly descended from people who were. They had food, gave a bit of history, and most had some sort of craft you made in every class. China, I remember, was one of those paper lanterns. I loved it.

I'm just playing devils advocate here but one could use the knowledge they learn for something not so good. To be honest, I agree with you fully, but there's also that fear of giving the knowledge to the wrong person.

Well, I think pretty much any person could use exstensive knowledge of a subject for selfish gain. I don't think that's any kind of reason not to encourage getting an education. And I certainly don't think tolerance education could in any way be used against anyone.

These kinds of programs are great for kids. Exposing them to different cultures at an early age generally helps quell the fear of that which is not familiar.

I completely agree. There's definitely a lot of good that comes from educating yourself on certain things. Of course, with anything in life, there are always some precautions that one should take. But that's a given.

I think it played a big role in why I'm so interested in culture today.

I'm sorry, but I have absolutely no idea what you're trying to get at. Care to elaborate?
