Issues of Concern for Safety Educators and How Schooling Programs can Address these Issues
Collaboration and Cooperation with non-English speaking cultural groups that are now prepared and self-sustaining.
Ethnic populations are diverse –
They are close-knit and have been taught methods and mannerisms that can and do conflict at times with standard policies in force.
Elders are the leaders and the communities (most populations) adhere to the role of authority of the elders.
Many ethnic populations have a deep mistrust and fear of all government authority.
Hierarchy structuring within various Middle-eastern cultures and Asian cultures.
A study of multi-cultural beliefs especially pertaining to family values and religious beliefs is imperative.
Hispanic and Latina cultures are deeply spiritual and believe in the teachings of their religious elders.
Understanding of various religious beliefs i.e. Buddhist, Muslim, Naturalist, Amish etc., are necessary to understanding what can be perceived as a danger to life.
