This email/prompt went out to the COOP mailing list this morning from Kirsten Olson, …We thought the responses were so interesting, we decided to make this into a general post and widen the conversation to everyone.
Tomorrow I am participating in a very small think tank meeting at Boston College with Peter Gray
the author of the post below, and a few other individuals. The topic of the meeting is blue sky wonderings about educational transformation, and whether are at an educational tipping point.
If any of you have a moment to read Peter Gray’s post, and the FANTASTIC comments that follow, I would love to carry your responses into this meeting. Peter and I have had discussions about whether or not it makes sense to be working in the public school system, as a recent post of mine explains.
Peter Gray posts on the Psychology Today website, and many of his posts gets hundreds of comments. Gray wrote this post in preparation for tomorrow’s meeting.
In hopes of carrying your thoughts with me,
