|That's an important question.|
How are teachers (and parents) to teach children today? Is becoming a global citizen and competing in a global economy the most important goal for students? Is developing a managed economy and learning how to fit into that economy the reason for your child's existence?
Watch Jeffrey Wright, a physics teacher, impart his educational lessons to his interested students. More teachers like him and his passion for his subject might help solve any STEM crisis. No computer could ever replicate the amazing way he teaches and captures his students' attention.
The latter half of the video illustrates him teaching the students the most important lesson in life...and it's not from any Common Core standard I've come across.
The article description in the NY times of the video:
Jeffrey Wright uses wacky experiments to teach children about the universe, but it is his own personal story that teaches them the true meaning of life.
