Reader feedback: Raise them with open minds

This is a fine idea to promote more understanding with other people from different cultures. Also, in doing this, children can learn at an early age compassion and willingness to see what they can do in their own way to cultivate communication with others of poorer means.

To help bridge the gap among nations and peoples starting young can only have positive results.

This exposure will help Slovak students down the road in their later years. For they are the hope and the future leaders of Slovakia.
