I?m doing a mock-thesis project for my 10th grade English class on ?xenophobia and nationalism in correlation to education and cultural awareness & diversity?. It?s a mouthful but basically I?m researching racism stemmed from fear of outsiders (xenophobia) in relation to one?s education level (the theory being that higher education = lower xenophobia).
What I ask is that someone presents me with a strong argument why education is not the solution to solving problems of xenophobia, and for you to share any other thoughts you have on the subject (even if you don?t believe your argument, if you could play devil?s advocate that would be great).
I have already discovered the argument of education being biased towards nationalism (hence the title). Also any other speculative theories on how to ?solve? the problem of xenophobia in our culture today would be appreciated. Thanks in advance,
