#MindaNow Congress Synthesis (Fr. Johnny C. Go, SJ)

Towards the end of JBEC’s #MindaNow Congress, Fr. Johnny Go, SJ offered one way of synthesizing the different themes that emerged from the inputs and the discussions. He named three big ideas: Diversity + Conflict + Bullying–three issues that Ignatian educators in the Philippines need to address and grapple with.

Mindanao has been the victim of national bullying in our history, stereotyped and labeled unjustly. We need to learn how to deal with diversity through respectful dialogue and collaboration, which are likewise a way forward in dealing with the problem of bullying in our schools.
