Peterson Lecture at the annual meeting of the International Baccalaureate programme in Atlanta

Atlanta, Georgia, USA, 18 April 2008  - His Highness the Aga Khan, Imam (Spiritual leader) of the Ismaili Muslims, today said in addition to traditional subjects, schools across the world must teach pluralism - a capacity to see those from different backgrounds as equals.

Delivering the Peterson lecture at the annual meeting of the International Baccalaureate programme in Atlanta, the Aga Khan cautioned that a pluralistic outlook is not an in-born skill and that it must be acquired through education.
