As previously mooted on this forum, I worked for many years previously in DEIS and fully concur with your experience. Views on so many things including gender, race tend to be black or white in nature. As mooted in my previous post, it makes the Teachers job more difficult to try and breakdown and challenge such strongly held views but I agree there is very much an onus on educators to share and evoke more liberal and inclusive viewpoints and to get student’s to look beyond their own locality as you point out. Only by doing this can they become global citizens.
