…because you bring so much to the party!
Finding common ground…and the courage of our convictions
We don’t need to hang on to practices in which we no longer believe, just because “that’s what the parents want”. Our parents showed that, when we work with them honestly and openly, and when we begin by connecting to their own experience and expertise as successful adults, they want the same things for their children as we do. They also want us to be courageous enough to throw out all that is getting in the way of real learning. They want us focus on what really matters: building experts with deep conceptual understanding of key ideas, high levels of competency in key skills and strong, positive character…the keys to success in a challenging world.
