. So one can see why, with a nearly limitless volume and assortment of cultures we are exposed to and interact with on a daily basis, it is crucial for our adolescents and young adults to be equipped with the necessary proficiencies to successfully communicate across cultural lines and, as are so often encountered, cultural divides. I just don’t see how one can expect to harness their true potential when they are incapable, or unwilling to interact outside of their cultural norms. In this modern society, that is essentially existing with one’s head buried in the sand. And that just doesn’t sound like all that fun of a way to live. Thank you for the time, and I’m sorry for the long-winded diatribe.

resulting in more American jobs--and also the potential for innovative research and groundbreaking discoveries that carries with it the capability of decreasing our reliance on foreign fossil fuels (the benefits of which are far too immense to list here). That said, I find intercultural communication to be, especially in the diverse, rapidly evolving society we exist in, absolutely fundamental. America is the quintessential melting pot. It is the sheer multiplicity of people, ideas, values, industries, religions, and cultures saturating our society that all contribute to form a sort of patch-work quilt that is OUR America.

This is certainly not an attempt to attack you, but rather an appeal to consider the inherent advantages, no, necessities of offering such courses to students. I am of the opinion that alternative energy curriculum should be available in an elective format, whereas students will have the opportunity to explore this field if they so desire. The primary benefits of allowing students such an avenue, in my opinion, include fostering a generation of American young-adults who have an interest and aptitude in the field of alternative energy--leading to an expansion of this sector,

I do agree that the American public education system is sorely lacking in adequate U.S. history lessons (unless a student takes it upon them self to enroll in advanced-placement courses during high school, which offer so immensely much more insight than the scratching-of-the-surface lesson plans practiced in standard coursework). In attacking, "multi-culturalism and now bogus green concerns," however, I truly believe that you set a dangerous, short-sighted precedent in failing to acknowledge the critical importance of educational opportunities in the fields of alternative energies and intercultural communication.
