Volume 7, Issue 2 (2023) Realization, Diversity, and Lifelong Learning

In this new and intriguing Volume 7, Issue 2 edition of the Journal of Research Initiatives, the authors give special attention to realization, diversity, and lifelong learning themes. In doing so, a good cross-section of educational levels is covered, including K-12, higher education, and faculty professional development training. When reading the articles, the reader will find meaningful discussions about thought-provoking topics involving the growth of inner consciousness and moral reasoning. Put into the terms used in practical teaching and learning; special emphasis was given to self-realization, identity development, visualization, memory, and integrity. In addition, the authors were highly concerned with the synergy between human development and equity in the present-day education of diverse individuals and social environments and its effects on human rights in our cultural diaspora. This is especially important as we approach February, in observation of Black History Month. We are confident that you will find this edition to be an enticing learning experience that will stimulate valuable intellectual ideas to enrich your educational practice.
