This is somewhat of a rhetorical question because "we" (those of us who are actively engaged with children presently) do not seem to be actively making decisions that impact our community and country as a whole.
Especially about belonging, inclusion, and equity in education.
For EVERY child.
Not just the ones who:
score above average on standardized tests that help boost the school grade
are reading at grade level
have the benefit of a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast
fit the mold of what should be
society has deemed as "normal"
This statement resonates with me.
Imagine a world where we truly believe that everyone belongs and contributes something of value?
What are we NOT learning and how are we NOT growing
because "we" as a society
can be close-minded?
Short and sweet this week, but carries a hefty message...
