Indiana’s urban schools often serve students across a range of backgrounds, races, ethnicities, religious beliefs, and ability. This diversity gives students a chance to learn and grow together, overcoming beliefs founded in stereotypes, and to develop a deeper understanding about culture, language, and each other.
Recently a student from Michigan City High School in Michigan City Area Schools shared her opinion that one of the school’s biggest strengths is its diversity. In the interview published in the Newsdispatch.com she describes how she has come to learn more about how people are more alike than different because of her experiences at the school.
