Broadening students' horizons

I agree that "we can and should give our students an understanding in depth of at least one culture." I add that the collection of those other cultures should include not only state-dominating cultures such as those of Japan or a European country, but some of the hundreds of small-scale cultures with values much different from our own, such as those of the Bushmen of southern Africa.

These can have even more to teach us about the great range in human ways of life. Guy Ottewell, Greenville, S.C.
