New Year’s Resolutions : 2¢ Worth
"1. I will accept that I may no longer be a believer—Over the years, I have been gradually, & not w/out resistance, losing my faith. I am afraid that I may no longer believe in education. There is no problem w/ education. Education is the problem. Our goal is preparing our children for their future, & I am becoming convinced that education—our belief in education—is preventing us from accomplishing that goal.

2. I will avoid, at all (most) costs, using the following words: education, student, technology, teach, teacher

3. I will try, at all costs, to speak plaining & to clearly paint pictures for what I am striving to convey. If we agree that “it takes a village to teach a child,” then we need to be speaking in villagese, not schoolese.

4. I will more aggressively & compellingly speak out against standardized testing & to direct conversations twrd alternatives…standardized, high-stakes testing has done far more harm to more children than all the social networks on planet."

"for men, the secret of success lies in setting specific goals and focusing on the rewards you will get if you achieve them; for women, the best way to keep a resolution is to tell the world about it."
