After I wrote this post, I came across this passage in Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me:
"Why, precisely, was I sitting in this classroom?
The question was never answered. I was a curious boy, bu the schools were not concerned with curiosity. They were concerned with compliance."
Let's commit our schools to fostering curiosity - not compliance - in children and adults alike.

Thanks so much for this window into your practice. As a professional development provider this is something I needed to see this week. With Gratitude.
