Ten things we may be doing wrong in middle school
Ira David Socol

Brilliant! I only wish that we could find a way to make parents more aware of these issues because they have been brainwashed into believing that what public schools are doing is in the best interest of their children.

Re: movement — I read an article the other day about “why children can’t sit still.” Well, duh! It’s because they aren’t supposed to. Physical movement in childhood plays a huge part in the development of both the vestibular and muscular systems. Instead of honoring that, we curtail it by making them sit with their hands folded and eyes on the teacher starting in kindergarten! We jail people for keeping children locked in a dark closet…but aren’t we perpetrating the same type of child abuse in many of our schools?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
