Rox and Roll -- Parents: let Harvard go

Rox and Roll -- Parents: let Harvard go | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"As a former admissions officer for two "elite" schools -- one Ivy and one West Coast Ivy-equivalent -- I am in a unique position to offer some insights for parents that may be of help in raising healthful teens. Exasperated as much by the reaction to a couple of recent teen suicides as I am to the acts themselves, I offer my views here not because I'm an expert in suicide-prevention: I'm not. I offer this post because we're all looking for some way to help our community's kids."

Jennifer Cowley's curator insight, November 9, 2014 6:28 PM

This is a valuable read for all high school students and their parents.  Having just done 4 hours of interviews with parents last week, most of whom asked some version of the question "what grade is my child getting?", I echo the sentiment that we need to stop focussing on the grade and refocus on learning.  School is only in small part about the future school and job prospects of children.  The majority of it is about the child's NOW.  By placing so much pressure on future (im)possibilitiies, students are learning to ignore the present which they often enjoy very much, and are becoming anxious about some ephemeral future.  Like Rox, I am not advocating mediocrity, but mindfulness.  As adults we need to be mindful of students' right to be present just as students need to learn to be present, not to serve a future, but because the present is pretty awesome and too many of them (and us) are missing it.
