Hope For The Future
Much has been written (some of it by me, see Boxes) about the devastating impact of America’s current obsession with standardized testing on our education system (see a description of testing costs here). We have also heard countless debates about the focus of our education system? Should it be STEM or STEAM? (I really like this argument for SEA because it focuses on what I think we are missing in schools today) But I don’t want to make this post about the failures of our education system, because yesterday I was given one shining day filled with hope. Hope for education in America, education here in Eastern Kentucky, and, most of all, hope for my son’s education here in Montgomery County, Kentucky.
