Time for a moment of silence in our schools

 

April 13, 2018



The world has changed. Our needs have changed. Our vision of the future has changed. Schools haven’t been keeping up.

If our children are our future, then the way we run our schools reflects our dreams for the future. There was an era when American parents dreamed of their children going to college, earning a good degree and supporting a family with all the good things America could provide.

For that, all that was needed was a school that gave your kids that entry pass to college. Principally, your children needed information and the skills to access that information.

Today our dreams are different. We want healthy kids, in body, in mind and in spirit. The facts of this century have taught us that both the success of our economy and of our personal sense of well-being is not based on smarts alone, but on human integrity, a sense of ethics and a sense of meaning in life. We have learned the hard way that none of those things come naturally, or easily.

Most of all, we need respite from the noise.
