The education of children and young people in schools is one of
the most important tasks of any society – a task that is about much more than obtaining academic qualifications. It also has an
important role in shaping people’s views and their relationships
with others. In particular, schooling can help to counteract the
negative views – hate, bigotry and prejudice – that exist in our
society, and promote the healing of community divisions.
