Today's students are the most racially tolerant generation the nation has ever seen. According to recent studies, they are more likely to have friends or date across racial and ethnic lines than earlier generations. They believe racism is wrong. Despite some progress, racism is still pervasive in American schools. This article describes what schools can do to promote tolerance and equality. It discusses four areas that schools should focus on their effort to promote tolerance and equality. These are: (1) use anti-racist curricula; (2) deepen character education; (3) promote cross-group contact; and (4) strive for school equality.
