Playing To Learn

Susan Engel’s Playing to Learn, an Op-Ed piece in the February 2nd New York Times is right on the money.  It points us away from stuffing our children like Strasbourg geese for test success, and toward an education that values listening, collaborating, following their curiosity, and creating things – “from building contraptions to enacting stories to inventing games”.  Read it.  Spread the word.
