A learning journey began in 2003, when I travelled to Colombia to teach English. I went there to teach, but was soon learning more than I ever thought possible. This blog documents sporadic snapshots of educational highlights from my 5 years in Colombia and beyond. The learning continues...
I just saw this tweet from UNICEF encouraging to sign a petition not to lose a generation from getting educated. I have thought a lot about how too many children in our most advanced countries are missing out on opportunities due to the pedagogical miscommunication between traditional methods and modern children's way of learning. This, however, as with children in under-developed parts of the world, is something completely different.
It's shameful that modern society cannot develop throughout its spectra of core human development needs enough to include honest investments in educating and developing all children, no matter how far away they are and in what surrounding they live. It should be a given that this is unacceptable and that all leaders with resources should take action to help. The rest of us can at least sign a petition for change.
