Explain how the following quote resonates for you. Make connections and provide specific examples referencing your values and personal story.
â€œWe can educate all children if we truly want to. To do so, we must first stop attempting to quantify their capacity. We must be convinced of their inherent capability, humanity, and spiritual character. We must fight the foolishness proliferated by those who believe that one number can measure the worth and drive the education of human beings or that predetermined scripts can make for good teaching. Finally, we must learn who our children are â€“ their lived cultures; their interests; and their intellectual, political, and historical legacies.â€
