The Shift From Student Back To Child

Education has made a drastic shift over the last couple of decades. With the federal and state focus on accountability, our schools have lost their focus regarding what a school’s true purpose is. Kids come to school to learn and learning doesn’t start and end with Reading, Math, Science and Social Studies. To develop lifelong learners, you must develop life skills and this can only be accomplished by teaching and developing the whole child. Often times, we see the kids that walk into our buildings as just students. Today, students have become commodities that either help or hurt our schools’ accountability. Unfortunately, this is what our current accountability systems have evolved our schools into. It doesn’t have to be this way and we’re challenging you to join the Leaving The Village movement to shift the focus from students back to children.
