Then ask yourself:
What were some of the greatest lessons that I “don’t remember learning” in school?
What topics should or should not be discussed in schools through literature?
Author’s Note: This video moves me EVERY TIME I watch it. My heart races as each word passes through their mouths, feeling the emotion behind each one. In my opinion, it is the TRUTH in their words, that conjure up so many different emotions in me, especially as an educator. I find that many people, want to protect a child or teenager’s innocence in school; and a small part of me understands that. However, most of today’s students are exposed to more profanity and sexual content in their own life through music, television shows, video games, movies and the internet. So, are we really protecting them? What are your thoughts?
Feel free to share this In The Moment post with others. I do not own the video.
