EMG Quote of the Week – Education seeks understanding
Education is fundamental to creating change. As options and different viewpoints open up, and they are critiqued in a way that opens up different opinions and facts, a richer learning environment occurs. When students are lead to question and reason, their level of understanding is not just based on acquiring knowledge. It’s much deeper and richer than that.
To inspire, it breathes life into it. Inspiring students gives them opportunities to see possibilities. It gives them the green light to pick apart their learning and build their own point of view that is informed and not just regurgitated. This in turn will create young people who are active in their learning and active participants in the world. This ultimately brings about change. Change for a better and stronger future.
