Why is it important to help students connect to their cultural heritages?

"Rote learning and academic theory are not enough to give the perspective that we need to have in order to meet the challenges of this new millennium. To solve the problems of countries getting along with one another, we need to understand our own culture and the role it plays in our lives — in order to be able to understand the role that the culture of another person plays in their lives."
—Liz Gallego
