Today I have a guest post over at Humane Connection describing some of my observations from a recent trip to Walt Disney World:
I know, I know. Disney, the the embodiment of what ails us as a society and a species. It’s not my favorite place, but it holds fond memories for my husband, my kids enjoy it, and their grandmother lives in Orlando. And so we go.
As a student of humane education, I found abundant opportunities for considering all sorts of issues and for practicing critical thinking with my kids; an entire book could be (and has been, many times over) written about the company. For the purposes of creating a blog post of reasonable length, I’ve decided to focus on four popular rides that could use some tweaks – minor ones, really – in order to truly “weave the importance of diversity and inclusiveness” into guests’ experiences.
Go check it out (please), and add your own ideas!
