with generous amounts of courage

What I am learning from people I have talked with or observed so far is that school’s impact on them is felt more than measured. As I continue on my quest, my hope is to find others whose thinking goes beyond testing and comparing and preparing…and toward curiosity and creativity laced with generous amounts of courage.
I have not read this book by mike rose yet but am putting it on my list.

“There’s not much public discussion of achievement that includes curiosity, reflectiveness, imagination, or a willingness to take a chance, to blunder. Consider how little we hear about intellect, aesthetics, joy, courage, creativity, civility, understanding. For that matter, think of how rarely we hear of commitment to public education as the center of a free society.”– mike rose
