We Care Therefore We Are

So very many things seem blogworthy coursing through my head during the day. But by the time I actually sit in front of this laptop, no matter what time it is, early or late, nothing seems to matter more than going to sleep. After a class in which a student actually asked why we should care about one another, debriefing the exchange that followed in a circle of six caring professional educators working at one school but coming from several continents, let alone five different cultures and countries, I realize students are not alone in their chronic indifference, and that we must all keep trying to care and then act on it. Thanks for the reminder, George Lakoff. TED’s Kathryn Schultz invites us to begin by suspending our obsession with being wrong or right. Touché.
