Can you possibly think of a world where everything is just the same, monotonous? One type of food, clothing style, a kind of houses, vehicles, people, education, etc. 

No one prefers to be monotonous. What we prefer is a variety of choices. In other terms, we prefer diversity in our lives. Just like diversity is important in our tradition, culture, people, etc., diversity is an essential component in education too. Education is an important part of human development. So, segments like equity and inclusion are also necessary for the educational field.

The diversity is essential in delivering proper education to students belonging to different backgrounds and cultures. While providing education in any institution certain factors like gender, caste, religion, background, etc. should be considered to facilitate diversity in education.

Let us now discuss why diversity is important in education.

  • Improves the performance of students

Diversity in education is an essential factor deciding the achievements of the students in their educational fields. When students are taught in a diverse environment, their attention/concentration power increases which in turn improves their academic performances.

In a diverse environment, the students can share their ideas and viewpoints, associated with any topic, which helps in promoting creativity and innovation. The different environment helps in improving the logical & reasoning power, critical thinking, problem-solving skills, as well as the communication skills of a student.

  • Promotes a sense of security

When the students are taught in a diverse setting, they can easily accept the differences in other’s opinions on the same topic. And because of the same, the students feel free to showcase their viewpoints and ideas.

  • Helps in shaping the ethics of the students

When students are taught in a diverse atmosphere, they easily accept diverse viewpoints. As a result of this, qualities like acceptance and respecting other’s views, are instilled into their minds. This quality helps in shaping the personality of the students which in turn helps in developing an ethical society.

Now, how to implement diversity in education?

The first essential component of imparting diverse education to the students is by encouraging critical thinking. The teachers and other educational staff should opt for those ways of learning which involve critical thinking.

The teachers should help the students to accept the difference in opinions and should teach them values like mutual respect and acceptance. This will assist in the promotion of diversity in education.

The teachers should focus on understanding their students and use different methods of teaching, suiting the needs of the students.

The teachers can take the help of diverse materials focussing on factors like caste, economic background, nationality, religion, etc.  and promote the diversity in student opinions on the mentioned factors. This will help in bridging the gap amongst the students and develop a sense of brotherhood and unity.
