Just back from our local High School after seeing the “Race to Nowhere.” I encourage everyone to see this film. This will open your eyes to the stresses placed on our students and families which is in turn showing signs of the health and wellness of our society.
The demands and measurement of achievements have propelled out of control leaving our children stressed out and ill. Endless hours of activities and homework leave little time for unstructured fun. We as parents need to put the fun back in life and stop racing to nowhere.
Let’s restore creative learning and teaching, stressing the importance of learning with passion rather than meeting or exceeding standards.
What do you value and how do you share your values and your definition of success with those you love?
