Congratulations Rosa. You speak with a freshness and freedom . I
think teachers in the US must have a very hard time having to deal
with all the petty prejudices that must exist with some school
communities. Though I suppose to some they are not petty but major
impediments to the growth human knowledge and understanding.
Here to in Australia I believe we have a pretty tolerant society. We
have some pretty stupid politicians and some very greedy "developers"
but on the whole we get along pretty well and people are free to say
and think what they please. Though there are some pretty funny
fundamentalist religious groups here and there. They are tolerated
mostly with synical humour.
As populatioms grow however governments
are forced to bring in more and more restrictions which curtail the
freedom I know as a child. i.e. Restrictive gun laws, which on the
whole are pretty sensible. We have never been a hand gun society
Anyway thank you Rosa
