Cultures that must change

Key in Lock

What is holding original thinking back from taking hold in our schools and homes?  We have educational cultures in place that hold individuals into a “well-rounded” model. Education is hampered by high-stakes testing that limits the time and individual considerations students need.  Our societies place more value on college-preparation than identifying student Original Thinking Areas and allowing them to invest their time to best serve them.

In one student’s voice, “I would have felt stupid if I did not take their classes.”
