In a world of hate, fear and 'alternative facts', education really does matter
- Fifteen years ago I coined the phrase ‘parallel lives’ to describe the complete segregation of communities[1]. People from the same background who live in the same area, go to school with each other, work in the same places or occupations, and share social and cultural activities, are likely to have a limited view of the world. In such circumstances they will have no real opportunity to challenge stereotypes, confound myths and to see the human face of the ‘other’. They lack shared spaces to meet with others and have little reason to venture out of their comfort zones. They lived in self-confirming worlds.
