Potential is our greatest resource and our most difficult challenge. Speaking from the perspective of a teacher our most important job is to recognize and develop potential.Its unfortunate the so called modern educational system hasn’t allowed teachers to do their most important work. Challenging  students to reach their individual potential. Instead they’re forced to focus lesson plans that will allow students to  score well on standardized tests!

Which makes me wonder what would have happened if Mozart, Einstein, Franklin, Ford, and Edison had to go through this methodology? With that said how much potential is being lost or buried do to this ridiculous system? How many educators are leaving because they no longer feel fulfilled? What is our future if we are unable to have a generation that can’t think outside the “standard?”

The potential is there. The question is who’s going to find it?

  1. Interesting, the ‘conveyer belt’ of the education system. A question I’ve often mulled over myself. Whose interests are being served? Students or the system?
