Understand the world through multiple perspectives
The demographics of the KSC student body and of the region in which we are located do not yet reflect the diversity of the United States and of the world. Therefore, we are especially committed to guiding our candidates to develop an understanding and respect for all people and cultures, and for the impact of globalization on our educational systems.
The concept of multiple perspectives includes knowledge of the diversity of learning styles and abilities, personal cultural, and economic backgrounds, historical and philosophical approaches, and the contexts in which these differences interact. We live in an increasingly pluralistic society where awareness of and reflection about multiple perspectives serves to enrich our experiences and support the development of critical thinking toward equity and justice. It is important for educators to possess the capacity to promote understanding of how contemporary issues and world events influence B-12 students, their families, and the environments in which they work and learn.
