the people we want to be

I read an interesting quote recently:  Education as inquiry provides an opportunity for learners to explore collaboratively topics of personal and social interest for purposes of producing a more equitable, a more just, a more thoughtful world.  In this way, curriculum becomes a metaphor for the lives we want to live and the people we want to be  (Harste, 2001).

It was another tragic day for education on Friday.  It makes you reconsider our role as teachers and the impact we have on our students.
