Yes

 @9L3DWG3 from Georgia agreed…2mos2MO

This should be a requirement because there are many students with disabilities, mental health issues, personality disorders, and physical differences. Teachers and faculty need to be train on how to deal with these kinds of student so they can handle the situation and student in the best way possible.

 @9H5K3DB from Hawaii agreed…6mos6MO

Statistics show that students and teacher of the same race connect better and create a better enviorment for thoose around them.

 @9GWL9R4 from Arizona disagreed…6mos6MO

Teachers and faculty are entitled to their beliefs. They should not be accused of being inherently racist. That is offensive in its own right. The training should be optional but not forced on faculty.

 @9FPMD5H from Texas disagreed…8mos8MO

I think that diversity training is unnecessary for many teachers as they already have to go through professional development and other required training which would make it unfair to add another one to their already heavy workload. Plus most teachers are already aware enough about diversity they don't need training.

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...1yr1Y

No

 @9L3DWG3 from Georgia disagreed…2mos2MO

Teachers and faculty need to have diversity training so they can deal with students that are different.

 @9GBWNSZRepublican from West Virginia disagreed…7mos7MO

What are the chances of misidentifying an action and creating a problem? Much higher without the knowledge of culture.

 @9G676V7Women’s Equality from Texas disagreed…7mos7MO

That this should help teachers interact with people from all different communities to provide a safe learning environment for these kids.

 @9FY7K56 from California disagreed…7mos7MO

Teacher and faculty diversity training can significantly improve cultural competence among educators. This training exposes them to diverse perspectives and experiences, helping them better understand and connect with students from various backgrounds. When teachers are more culturally competent, they can create a more inclusive and welcoming classroom environment, ultimately benefiting all students.

Reduced Bias and Stereotyping: One of the primary goals of diversity training is to reduce implicit biases and stereotypes that educators may hold. Research has shown that these biases can negativ…  Read more

No, only for teachers or faculty members that display racist behavior

 @9LVQWTRRepublicandisagreed…3wks3W

They should all attend training so they can all have the abilities to do the same thing and when they need to do it. Also it wont limit the amount of people.

 @9LSPH6S from Idaho disagreed…3wks3W

Diversity training would help clear ignorance and also provide as a guide to see who should be allowed in a teaching position. Providing this training also helps children, parents, etc. to feel secure that they won’t experience discrimination.

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...1yr1Y

No, only private schools should be allowed to require mandatory training

  @jsimicConstitution from Texas answered…7mos7MO

DT is racist

Diversity training is systemically racist against white people.

Voluntary DT can be permitted, but Mandatory DT should be banned as unconstitutional.

 @WornoutTacosSocialist from Texas disagreed…7mos7MO

It's essential to remember that diversity training aims to foster understanding and respect among different races, not to favor one over another. It's akin to the classic schoolyard lesson of treating others the way you'd like to be treated.

For instance, consider a kaleidoscope, a favorite childhood toy for many of us. Each piece within it is unique, different in shape and color. When seen in isolation, these pieces may not seem special. But when they come together, they create a beautiful, intricate pattern that is a joy to behold. This is the essence of diversity training…  Read more

Yes because schools are about learning more. Understanding diverse perspectives seems to be one of the core missions of schools.

  @04DANSALCALIFORNIA@Independent from California answered…1yr1Y

Encourage diversity, but if you have to tell your employees not to be racist, they shouldn't be employees.

 @9F56K6ZLibertarian from Utah answered…8mos8MO

No, the trainings should be banned as they lead to more prejudice.

  @VulcanMan6  from Kansas commented…8mos8MO

How so? This would only ever be an issue to people with bigoted beliefs.

 @9MFBRSL from North Carolina answered…6 days6D

Yes, but only if such training focuses on racial cooperation and understanding rather than critical race theory

 @9MDD3XT from Texas answered…1wk1W

Yes, but only required in public schools and reinforcment/discipline given for infraction. Private schools should be incentivized for diversity efforts and schools that do not choose to not penalized, but not subsidized.

 @9MC5XW7  from Michigan answered…1wk1W

Diversity training should be included just like any other part of training, but it shouldn't be any more significant than the rest.

 @9M6RJRFIndependentfrom Maine answered…2wks2W

Circumstantial. Everyone should be made aware of the potential of discrimination and how to prevent it

 @9M2KMKV from Texas answered…2wks2W

No, training should not have to be required; teachers and faculty should either present diversity or not be hired

 @9LM732Q from Maryland answered…1mo1MO

Mandatory training for cultural sensitivity or behavioral issues.Not based on just diversity which implies racial motivations.

  @JcawolfsonIndependent  from Pennsylvania answered…1mo1MO

Yes, diversity training should be encouraged but only required for teachers or faculty members that commit acts of prejudice

 @9L7Q9V3 from North Carolina answered…2mos2MO

Yes, but only if such training prioritizes racial cooperation and understanding instead of preaching critical race theory

 @Brandonnoe84Libertarian  from Colorado answered…2mos2MO

No, diversity training should be encouraged but not required unless a faculty member commits acts of prejudice. Only private schools should be allowed to require mandatory training otherwise.

 @9L6ZYQN from New Hampshire answered…2mos2MO

I think schools should have the option to require diversity training for teachers and faculty. It can help promote inclusivity and understanding in the educational setting. However, it's also important to consider individual perspectives and ensure that the training is effective and respectful of personal beliefs.

  @JSlinky21  from Florida answered…2mos2MO

Yes, but the training should serve as a general reminder regarding the scope of student diversity, such as age, race, culture, religion, household, mental health, class, etc. - not simply focus on race or culture.

 @9KVVV5LRepublican  from Michigan answered…2mos2MO

Being what the U.S. calls an Asian American I don't think diversity should be spread, it hasn't done anything for me besides making me feel guilty just because I look different makes me "special"

 @9KJJ5W5 from Oklahoma answered…3mos3MO

Yes, diversity training is learning about people who are different from you, you do t have to agree but you need to understand their beliefs and be respectful

 @9KDPB45Libertarian from Florida answered…3mos3MO

This is not an issue for federal law. We already have laws in place to deal with discrimination. This is a matter to be decided by local governments or school boards- not federal law.

 @9KCW6DM  from Illinois answered…3mos3MO

Focusing on diversity is more racist than not, often pushing people to be more diverse means they hire people not on merit but on factors to fill a quota. Race shouldn't be a qualifier nor should is be a disqualifier

 @9JW87V6 from North Carolina answered…3mos3MO

Yes, but only if the focus is on racial cooperation and understanding instead of critical race theory

 @9JQHBQ7 from Ohio answered…3mos3MO

They should take a quiz and if they dont pass a certain score they should learn more bc they paid for college to learn NOTHING about anything but white people

 @9JPJ5CR from New Hampshire answered…3mos3MO

Yes, It is important to apreciate other cultures but should not take priority over scholarly subjects. Having small units or fairs would be a good way to learn without making people upset.

 @9HYM3Q7 from Illinois answered…4mos4MO

 @9HWK8SF from Pennsylvania answered…4mos4MO

No, because at the end of the day we are all humans who bleed the same. This should not be a requirement this is something that should come naturally.

 @9HW5QZ6 from Florida answered…4mos4MO

No, provide classes for teachers and students to take if they please. Terminate teachers who that commits an act of discrimination

 @9HSLTHP from Texas answered…5mos5MO

I think it should be required but it should teach how to handle situations where kids are being homophobic or racist.

  @ChaseOliver  from South Carolina answered…5mos5MO

Individual schools should be allowed to set their own policies, and parents may decide which schools their children will attend.
