Our kids are telling us something
. There is a revolution
rocking their world in education. Do we all know what's really going
on? Are we prepared to guide them toward the right choices?
the first time in decades the
education game has changed with hyper-speed momentum with technology,
globalization and the ever-growing achievement gap as huge factors.
we should also be looking at the other signs. Have you noticed a
growing sense that our kids are increasingly overworked, disengaged, or
intellectually bored? Or worse yet, are all three at once?
That's why we all need to be smarter about education. There are answers but we also have to know what questions to ask.
provocateur, muse, catalyst and game changer, The Daily Riff will
"sniff and sift" through our edu-culture, "curating" news and opinion
in quick, digest-sized take-aways for you to use and share. We're
doing the grunt work for you - eliminating the long, dry and irrelevant
to present the "best stuff" every day.
daily dose of education knowledge is power. The Daily Riff asked why does education feel so inaccessible? For something so personal and powerful, it makes no sense. It's time to tear down the edu-crat ivory tower walls.
many people steeped in the educational "system" are steering the conversation away from those interests that matter most: our students who are the future. Kids and parents feel something is just not right. So do the best educators.
We are here to let you know what we find... and to sort it out with you ...every day.
It should be a wild ride - jump in and join us -
