Dear Parents/Guardians,

Teaching children multiculturalism and pluralism has important social consequences and helps foster compassion and understanding of their fellow person.  Although teaching the secular point of view has traditionally been neglected when teaching about society/faith traditions, such study can be very enriching and foster creative and critical thinking in students.

Kind Regards,

Darth Harley,
