When we teach a child to make good decisions, we benefit from a lifetime of good decisions.
When we teach a child to love to learn, the amount of learning will become limitless.
When we teach a child to deal with a changing world, she will never become obsolete.
When we are brave enough to teach a child to question authority, even ours, we insulate ourselves from those who would use their authority to work against each of us.
And when we give students the desire to make things, even choices, we create a world filled with makers.
– from Stop Stealing Dreams by Seth Godin.
Seth Godin’s e-book/resource on education is a big read. I haven’t read it all yet.
It’s full of insight and challenge about education that can also be applied to all of life. Business. Church. Family. Relationships. Value.
