What is the role of schools and colleges in terms of educating students about the realities of life...the good, the bad and the ugly? As educators we have a responsibility to prepare our students to navigate through muddy waters. This can only happen if we encourage responsible debate, discussion and distention about a variety of issues that effect all of us including: religion, gender, sex, relationships and racism. Let's keep our students safe from violence. Everything else should be up for debate!
