Failing to Learn

‘Failure in a success-oriented culture is hard to take. We are failing and our children are failing in our schools at an alarming rate. Even children who achieve enviable grades are failing to learn much of what we hope to teach them: abstraction, curiosity, and, most of all, appreciation.’

– From the textbook ‘Educational Psychology’

  1. This pretty much sums up my motivation behind wanting you all to reflect on our lessons in the form of a blog! I’m looking forward to reading your abstractions, appreciations and seeing your curiousity come alive. 🙂
