International Herald Tribune: Letter from America: An Arabic school in New York reopens debate over diversity

By Richard Bernstein


September 9, 2007 NEW YORK: Thursday morning, dropping my son off for his first day of school, I saw a notice put up by the representative of the Parent Teacher Association. Among other activities she was encouraging parents to undertake was participation in one called “Diversity Matters.”

“We changed the name from ‘Perspectives on Diversity’ to ‘Diversity Matters’ to show that we want to be more pro-active,” the PTA representative explained.

People living outside of the United States might not appreciate quite how much “diversity” has become the secular religion of liberal American culture. It means, in the words of the PTA flier, “fostering respect and building inclusiveness” among people who have come to America from different backgrounds – nothing objectionable certainly.
