Beginning School

image

What is school for? Is it for sorting, counting, and measuring people to determine which slot to place them in for the unquestioning & optimum performance of a system ?

Or is it a place where people are welcomed, engaged, nurtured and invited to try new things in order to become compassionate , smart and expert navigators in a world that is ever-changing and that needs smart, socially competent and flexible thinkers?

The first day of school sets the tone for an individual’s school experience. A person’s school experience effects their growth and development as social and intellectual beings. It shapes self concept.

Beginnings are incredibly important.
