What particular population should a school seek to replicate in its student
body? Not the world's, for sure. Not the continent's, for sure. The
country's? The state's? Not the town: way too un-diverse. It seems to me
that diversity is very different in very different places and a population
that pretty much replicates the area a school is in is exactly what people
are objecting to when they want "diversity".
Maybe I do seek some balance in my activities and my diet. Maybe I have a
sneaky idea that those who don't may acheive more in their lives than I
possibly could in mine. Exactly those people who don't give a fig for
balance are zoned in on creating new ideas it seems to me.
