Welcome to another January 2014 Monday Moanin. Today we celebrate the American federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. It is also the Martin Luther King Day of Service Let’s honor Dr. King’s memory as we begin our work this week. The following Dr. King quote can help us reflect on the work we are doing in our schools.
” The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of education.”
The above quote raises some questions for us to reflect on. A few of them are listed below.
Do we have high expectations for all of our learners?
Is critical thinking reinforced in our classrooms? Is it taught?
Is character education a focus in our schools?
Is there a culture of acceptance in our schools?
Are we serving others in our school community?
