Theme: Tolerance 2.0

Check out additional, online-only content related to this issue 

"I am afraid that if tolerance were a Common Core performance standard, most middle schools would find themselves subject to program improvement. . . . If tolerance weren’t so important, we could continue to ignore the substantive issues that exist, as well as our responsibilities as educators and as world citizens. If only it weren’t so important—but it is."
—Ian Pumpian, p. 10
