metta8 saidNo one is suggesting that they be forced to read it. But part of the reason to go to college is to expand your experience and knowledge.
+1, I agree, the whole notion of going to college is not just to get a degree but broaden your experience of other ideas, cultures, etc. Once you hit the world, you can choose to filter or unfilter what you want, but the world out there is different from your own experiences and life, is how you are able to navigate in this world and have a broaden perspective of this world than the bubble you grew up. Choosing to put you head in the sand is not going to make the world change because you do not agree with an idea or concept, is how you are able to manage and internal deal with conflict that makes you an individual, not a robot.
