High School Doesn't Have to Suck - Chris Lehmann

Question:  What if high school wasn’t preparation for real life, instead it was real life?

When we allow kids to see themselves as authentic agents...
When we dare them to ask questions...
Seek out answers...
And build things that matter...
Then...
High school doesn’t suck anymore

When we do all that
we get kids who are encouraged
not just to be workers
but to be citizens empowered to change the world.
