occupy the revolution
Perhaps, a means to occupy the revolution today, right where you are (teachers):
Mark/record everyone as present
and give everyone an A.
[just a suggestion, if you want, you can. if not, no worries.
either way – blessed unrest is about to hit the (point of inflection) fan.]
We have enough evidence that our obsession with grades and attendance is/has been more detrimental than good. [Not to mention all the time (mental anguish) it takes.]
Why title our efforts nclb (no child left behind) – if our current system is set up to be skeptical if we don’t end up with some left behind (per the our current system’s definition of behind-ness). If perchance, everyone ends up with A’s and perfect attendance, it unsettles our bell-curve bent (another obsession).
A narrative for 100% of humanity, doesn’t seek permission from a bell curve. Our desire to control in order to help, … well, perhaps it’s hurting most of us. no?
Join the revolution.. wherever you are..today. We could indeed turn this on a dime (Illich).
And we do have a plan, not just flapping/whining/revolting – in the wind.
Perhaps we were quiet enough to hear the souls of people, everywhere.
And so perhaps, the plan, is your/our plan, forever emerging…
it’s a day – a special birthday and mom’s day – and so my run feels perhaps a bit freer. i’m skimming twitter, perhaps more freely. i see munoz, and .. save time and simplify. catches my eye. then i notice it’s to simplify – grading – so i carry on. then.. i grabbed it.
