A blog about Learning, about Education, about transformation, about change, about youth voice, about democratic human centered education. I am trying to ask the question "Why we educate" and what my answer means to me as a teacher and how my role shapes society and the whole.
I will take any decent human being who has any interest or passion for working with children for any amount of time any day of the week.
I have a dream that a new deal type program will open up and allow millions of over educated sane caring people the chance to return to work even part time as teachers aides. I truly think this would change education and the country. The dignity from having a job would be huge, the help for teachers would be transformative and the blurring of the lines between school and community would change both education and the community for the better!
Some brave school will take this up an be given prizes upon prizes for changing the way we educate our children and the relationships between adults and children, community and schools, work and life, and school and life.
