As I think about the start of the school for my children who are now a freshman and junior in high school and a sophomore in college, they don’t have much time left in K-12 education. One child has only two more years to learn from and with his teachers while my other child has four years. One might say that there is still plenty of time to improve education so they will reap these benefits, but is there enough time?
Given their years left in high school, what actions will the educators in their school do to help them be more engaged and involved in authentic learning opportunities each and every day beginning this year?
In Seth Godin’s blog, he states that too often we wait for the right moment to move or make change, but is there ever that right moment? People who make a difference never wait for just the right time. Given how fast children grow up, shouldn’t NOW, be the right moment? Will you be the educator who waits or the one who makes a difference?
