If we believe that all individuals are different and therefore that diversity does that every human being has something valuable, because each one feels, thinks and acts differently, but that even so, equal opportunities, not in the sense of homogeneity (in education) should be since by placing students by age are believed to have the same capacity, so it works with the same curriculum, methodology and at a same pace, this is to transmit knowledge and in no way there will be a learning, it is form similar individuals that respond to the same patterns of behavior, with the same knowledge and ways of thinking. The theory of multiple intelligences of Gardner, mentions the following: Gardner defines intelligence as the set of capabilities that enable us to solve problems or make valuable products in our culture. Gardner defines 8 major types of intelligences, or capabilities according to the context of production (linguistic intelligence, logical-mathematical intelligence, the intelligence body kinesthetic, musical intelligence, spatial intelligence, naturalist intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and intrapersonal intelligence). 1 This author is based on the idea that not all learn in the same way, because we develop the eight intelligences, but each of them in different grade. Speaking of equality and attention to diversity, believe in the tenets of article 3.
Constitutional and of the article 41 of the General Education Act, but will provide each student with what you need be equal?, undoubtedly you will need to define, since how Jose Contreras mentions it in your theme educate the eye and the ear: it is as well that the diversity is the collective of which do not fit for some reason, of ethnic minorities, those who have difficulties or delays in learning, the conflict in the classroom, of those who belong to social sectors disadvantaged, the disabled. 2 By which teachers we have the ability to understand, accept and resolve, this perhaps does not solve problems, but if allows us to deal with them in a more humane manner. Likewise, we must not allow that equality be confused with uniformity; because the individual is to be able to face the problems submitted to it and solve them with criteria and analysis, required a training school, a diversified, flexible and comprehensive school where work with a methodology consistent with the rhythms and styles of learning, so that the child acquires the capacity to build with the Guide and orientation of the teacher and in this way will be a school for everyone. The school must have a relationship closely with environment and East toward the school, and teachers work in a collegial manner, because individualism closes the possibility of receiving and giving support, greatly hindering the Organization of the institution and the academic performance of the student.
