It’s been a week…………
I forget that education is not about always about successful student learning and that sometimes it is about the politics. Fortunately these times are rare, but it just so happens that this week, there has been a confluence of politic events that has sharpened my focus.
Just when I was ready to inform some people in very non politic way that I thought maybe they should stick their ideas elsewhere, I saw students present on their experiences in relation to our education approaches. They made me remember the point of it all. They also used no politics at all. They spoke from the heart. They reminded me that education is about the heart as much as it is about the head and that quite frankly, we can play politics all we want, they will go on learning in spite of us.
You know, sometimes, it really is just worth it to stop and remember the point. Thank you to you amazing students!
