I sometimes wonder where it all got lost. Or did it? It’s still there. Passion. Excitement for learning. Kids’ curiosity. Wonder. Dreaming. A child’s natural need to explore. It’s still there. Sometimes it just feels… buried. Schools became about numbers. About reports. About data. Points. Grades. Percents. Levels. More data. Stuff. Is a percentage of “facts they know” going to matter in 30 years? Or is that passionate teacher they had who inspired their love of science going to make the difference? Or what about the teacher that encouraged their understanding of history? It’s what counts today and tomorrow and well into our future. You just can’t put a point value on passion. Even worse? When we put all the value on points. Let’s start a national movement to get passion for learning back into our schools. Into our classrooms. Into our kids. How about today?
