yes we can
The president-elect’s new website asks everyone to “tell us your vision for the country.” Here’s what I submitted:
Transform everything by teaching our children to be creative problem solvers, not through a broken education system that teaches compliance and deficiency, but through a new spirit of guided discovery with mentors devoted to kindling the spark within each child, so they may feel their own promise.
This is truly the lever that will change everything, given a chance. When children learn to question, when they’re taught confidence to solve problems with creativity, their lives become stories of opportunity and discovery.
