trailblazer in education
… when my children would come back from kindergarten without a single story to tell.
Except for the “Emperor of Silence”, a game where my daughter would guard her younger brother and the toys around them to sit still and quiet, with their hands behind their backs.
In those times nobody would talk about the joy of learning; it was all very serious, based on discipline and competition.
And I was not OK with that. I missed the noise of curiosity and the laughter of happiness.
