High School Stinks. Change the World (470)


When we allow kids to see themselves as authentic agents...
When we dare them to ask questions...
Seek out answers...
And build things that matter...
Then...
High school doesn’t suck anymore

When we do all that
we get kids who are encouraged
not just to be workers 
but to be citizens empowered to change the world.

Chris Lehmann is part of the Science Leadership Academy in Philly and I've included their About Us page for more great info on their incredible partnership:
