For some of us, public education was a hoop to jump, a hardship to persevere, and at worst, a prison we were forced to attend for a large portion of our developmental years. We weren't adverse to learning in fact, we spent hours learning on our own. So where was this aversion coming from? Dr. Tae's theories ring true to what I now know as an educator. It's time to rethink school, engagement, and the assessment of children's learning. Is it possible that the majority of us skaters growing up knew this all along.
