Valedictorian Graduate Speaks UP!Posted by Sharon Quinn on Jan 14, 2012 in Education in Crises, Educational Sense Blog | 0 comments
Erica Goldson is a valedictorian graduate from Coxsackie-Athens High School. She gives quite a speech to her audience and encourages a hard look at the state of education. She invites people to start a pedagogic movement.
A.K.R.N.A’s Educational Revolution by Evolution is an answer to a growing awareness that education cannot continue as it is. I’ve personally and professionally come to understand how-to turn this tide, and keeping that info to myself seems unconscionable. So, I reach back with a nonprofit dedicated to this movement that Erica bravely encourages us to participate in so that a paradigm shift will happen.
At Antakarana, we have laid down quite a track for those ready to kick pedagogic butt! Action, of course, is always a choice of will!
I think nothing makes the point that education reform is overdue like the students who have something to say about their experience. She was brave to give such a hard-hitting truthful talk, and in a personal note she comments about the nervousness in her voice, but she delivered it anyway! Kudos!
