Small Talk

After my last Saturday class was dismissed, I was in a great conversation with a student; he asked: what is a bad learning situation for a student? I stated being in a place that is insular and/or does not allow one to engage in diverse conversations with a number of people. It is hard to expand the mind in such a stagnant setting. He then asked: what is the best? I stated being in a place with diverse students and teachers. Ideally, a perfect place would have gay/lesbian teachers; black, white, Hispanic, and Asian teachers; Christian, Muslim, atheist, and others. The greater the perspective, the more intense the learning. This is a perfect setting.
