Student's Bill of Rights

Thank you, Peter, for a wonderful post on the need and content for a Student's Bill of Rights. Check it out.

For me, I wish children of the world will find:

A place that cares as much about their happiness as their education.

A place that cares more about their love of learning than their test scores.

A place where they feel safe and welcome and can’t wait to get to every morning.

A place that honors creativity more than memorization.

A place that has a library full of stories and a librarian who makes them come alive.

A place where technology hasn’t taken the place of playing with blocks, finger-painting, naps, graham crackers, or a teacher’s soft encouragement.

A place where they learn to work and play with kids who make not have been given the blessings of a middle-class lifestyle or a fully-functioning body or brain.

A place that teaches kindness along with math, tolerance along with history, and conservation along with science.

A place where teachers are excited about teaching and passionate about encouraging the passions in their students.

A place where they are never compared to their older sibblings.

What would you put on a Student's Bill of Rights?
