Thinking globally

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” – Mark Twain

“Those who know nothing of foreign languages know nothing of their own.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Become friends with people who aren’t your age. Hang out with people whose first language isn’t the same as yours. Get to know someone who doesn’t come from your social class. This is how you see the world.  This is how you grow.”  – author unknown

    Find out if they have a special needs program and how they address students with special needs if they don’t have a program. I’d really like to know.
