I pay my respects to classroots.org and join to the #EduThingsILike. We were kindly invited to participate in a meme Tom Vander Ark started. I confess that at the beginning I felt hesitant to do it, but after a call of conscience, I decided this a great opportunity to envision the ideal school from my particular perspective, I would like my family to have.
I agree to Chad Sansing when he says: "I think we need to say for ourselves what we stand for before we act in pursuit of it." Even when these are ideals, we need to keep dreaming. Haven't been said that you need to dream higher in order to, at least, get to the lower level?
Here's what I'd like
I like schools that not resemble prisons.
I like teachers who think they are not the only ones in charge of the subject.
I like parents who talk with their children at least 10 minutes a day, after returning from work.
I like edupreneurs who nonetheless rely on education as a way to get rich, no matter that this is mental and spiritual wealth.
I like leaders because without his charisma the group itself never will move on.
I like the inventors, those who live eternally the most restless curiosity of our students.
I like students who never remain silent, those who love to ask, although their tests show otherwise.
What do you like? @irasocol , @josiefraser , @republicofmath , @TheJLV , @Struggle2Learn. I am trying to follow Chad's rules, but feel no obligation to participate. On the other hand, if you happen to read this post and want to continue with this meme, feel free to do it so. Tag the people you would like to hear from.
