Everybody is afraid
The question I'd ask every administrator and school board is, "Does this curriculum you teach now make our society stronger?"
- Seth Godin in Stop Stealing Dreams
This is not a hypothetical statement. This is a call to action. Why wouldn't you ask every administrator this? Why wouldn't you ask ever school board this? Yet, very few will. For some reason we have reached a point in which we are afraid that by asking an administrator or school board member whether the "curriculum makes our society stronger", we are being offensive.
If anyone has the courage to ask this, and they reply "yes", please ask them "How?" Please share their responses in the comments. I do not expect to hear back from many.
