Today’s Motivational Monday comes from urban education insider Jeff Duncan-Andrade.
What’s it like for a 12 year old, or 15 year old to continually re-engage with violence daily and have to come to school and talk about test scores? “I can’t imagine the day after Columbine saying okay back to the books…. But that’s what we do everyday in the urban communities.” Jeff speaks up for education of urban youth. Jeff quotes Einstein in his next line, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results, but that’s what we do, which suggests to me that we don’t expect different results in urban schools.”
