Tomorrow, November 9th, at select schools across the Atlanta area, students will participate in Teaching Tolerance's Mix It Up program. This program is a national campaign that helps K-12 teachers develop inclusive school communities.
According to the Mix It Up program, students thrive, both socially and academically, in schools that are inclusive. Yet, for far too many students, schools are hotbeds of exclusion. Social scientists have long maintained that contact between diverse groups helps alleviate tensions and reduce prejudice.
