Diversity of the nowadays world includes critical situations at social and individual level. Children and youth are the most vulnerable categories. Education plays a fundamental role in their recovery and social inclusion. Education, in a moral, social and civic sense, is a way of integration in a system governed by rules, a way to combat and prevent negative behaviours. Education, as learning, is the major way to personal development. In the process of inclusion through education, it is essential that the others be educated too: education for responsibility and tolerance. The culture of acceptance is a condition of inclusion, obtained through education. Education has the power to change not only facts, but also mentalities, to heal not only the effects, but also the causes, in a synergistic action. Integration in educational systems and quality education should become priority policies at state level in the inclusion process and in mitigating negative diversity.
