Welcome to the Sunday Education Weekly for 07.29.12
My cousin sent this to me not long after the Aurora shootings. She writes:
I watched this and thought I should send it to lots and lots of people with all the garbage that's gone in Aurora. I smiled and cried at the same time ...but want to share this with you. It's a very good one.
In the midst of suffering, the human spirit can triumph. This spirit of perseverance cannot be chalked up to tracking human beings, assessments fashioned by education companies to determine future employment opportunities and students' resultant data sets. The joy in life is connecting with human beings (not human capital) in ways that don't even require words.
With thanks to my dear cousin.
