As we all rush to change the world, and as we hear more and more about a sense of urgency to change our schools, let us remember that what we don’t know… about our kids, about learning, about what lies ahead of us… vastly outweighs that which know. And let us always be humbled by the enormity of the task in front of us. It is that humility that allows us to hear the smallest voices around us, be it the voice of the quiet student too afraid to voice her confusion or our own voice — the voice of doubt in the back of our mind that forces us to question even our most core beliefs over and over again.
Let us be passionate, but never blind.
(This is what happens when I listen to folk music late at night.)
