In the unfolding century there is one human competency that will prepare our children for an unknown future:
the ability to think: critically & quantitatively
It is well past time to teach our students how to think, reason, consider and evaluate evidence, ask intelligent questions and, speak and act thoughtfully, confidently and intelligently. Check and verify your “alternate facts” please. Mathematics and science are too important to leave to memorizing facts and procedures. Stop the complacency: DEMAND that schools prepare children to understand, evaluate, evidence and ACT when they are being duped. Memorizing lists of isolated facts, sounds, words then slotting them into blanks does not prepare thinkers.
It prepares workers for assembly lines….
unfortunately this is the assembly line worker of the future
