Student voice is the most powerful and least tapped resource in education.
The saddest and most ironic practice in schools is how hard we try to measure how students are doing and how rarely we ever ask them.
Ask how they’re doing.
Ask how we’re doing.

The purpose of schooling is not to prepare students for the next stage of schooling. That isn’t a rat race I want to be a part of.
The purpose of education is to inspire students to explore, invent, challenge, and connect!

Yesterday after school the kids and I saw a video of “how to make stuffed peppers” on the Facebook and we decided to try making them in our test kitchen. They turned out pretty good – but not perfect. But…we’ll get … Continue reading
