What I Think Can Be Done

I am an optimist and I believe there are many things that can be done to improve the current educational (both for the teacher and for the student) situation. Perhaps the most important thing is to identify what the problem is - or at least a part of the problem.

To the left is a poster I made - using a quote from The Coddling of the American Mind by Jonahan Haidt and Greg Lukianoff. It hung in my room for the past few years and really gets to the heart of what I believe teaching should do. There is a link to the poster - feel free to download and print it - I took the picture too (on the North Branch Trail).
