This article reminds me that the role of the schools is unchanging: to equip young people with the skills and knowledge to be good citizens and help to sustain our democracy into the future. They need a grounding in science, mathematics, history, literature, the arts, world cultures, and foreign language. They need to learn the social skills of sharing, cooperation, and courtesy. The adults in charge need to encourage the development of good character, which is fundamental to good citizenship.
what if ....the only grounding we need – is a prep for uncertainty. what if we just focus on – do you know how to learn/do things, do you know what to do when you don’t know what to do. ..
