This paper approaches the problem of diversity in an educational context. The balance between diversity and unity is an old philosophical question. Education has not been spared the struggle for the answer to this dichotomy. The application of multiple intelligences theory, based on the administration of a MIDAS questionnaire, has revealed a detailed panorama of the potential of a group within the context of the education system. The problem of diversity is not bound to the direct teaching or immediate address of this potential. It is not only a question of the immediate but also a question of what the future holds and how this potential unfolds and is folded by the context of the global village and its speeded time spiral.
Keywords: Educational diversity, cultural diversity, multiple intelligences theory, interpersonal intelligences, intrapersonal intelligence.
