As educators, we work to develop each child’s full potential; the whole child. Why should school districts, government agencies and society as a whole sustain a public institution that provides for anything less? It’s time to give up cultural contradictions and the convenience of conundrums and make deliberate and strategic choices in the name of each child being educated as a whole child. Children are not born obsolescent. They’re resilient, full of hopes and dreams and promise. We owe them nothing less.
