    I think this is a big move and a great solution for racism as a whole. Racism doesn’t only happen outside our homes/community but it is mainly developed and observed in schools. It is also where it starts sprouting and is practiced on a daily basis. I hope this will be implied to all of the schools worldwide. I believe if we successfully completely delete racism in schools, the future will be brighter for the next generations.
