How far my parent’s generation advanced past the achievements of my grandparent’s generation. And how much farther my generation has progressed beyond the accomplishments of my parents. And even though we cannot imagine everything the future holds for our children, we know they will push the boundaries of living and learning even farther ahead for all humanity. So why would we persist in sustaining an education system that does not prepare them for their future? More than any generation that’s come before them, our children need and deserve new opportunities to learn and be successful. Beyond brick-and-mortar facilities and walled-in classrooms, measured common competencies and and old-as-time outcomes. The sage wisdom of this proverb still holds true for us today. Our children are expecting more of us, and we must have the capacity and the will to deliver.
