Sorting Through Race Relations At UCSD

It’s amazing to me that we’re having this problem at an institution of higher learning…. When there have been so many studies that have shown that education is the answer to intolerance and hatred….

In 1993, as a music teacher at San Diego City Schools, I was involved with a number of San Diego folks – Jerry Sanders, who had just become police chief, Marty Emerald, who was a regular on Channel 10 news, and we went to the mountains for a week for an event called “Camp Anytown” with 63 high school kids who were chosen for their leadership skills. It was probably the most powerful experience I’ve ever had in my adult life – I was 40 at the time, and I can say that The 63 kids who left the mountain at the end of that week were not the same ones who had arrived.

Therefore, I would like to see the University have a mandatory general education requirement which includes a human relations course.
