What & WHO Matters Now ~
Neoteny is the retention of childlike attributes into adulthood. Human being are younger longer than any other creatures on earth, taking almost twenty years until we become adults. While we retain many of our childlike attributes into adulthood most of us stop playing when we become adults and focus on work.
When we are young, we learn, we socialize, we play, we experiment, we are curious, we grow, we imagine, we hope.
Our teachers play such an important role in shaping and developing our kids during their youth. Help equip them to help our kids reach for the stars.
Matt Damon's lovely speech rings so true. Please take a minute to read it...it begins:
I flew overnight from Vancouver to be with you today. I landed in New York a few hours ago and caught a flight down here because I needed to tell you all in person that I think you’re awesome....
Hats off to Matt for taking the time...And here he is as he provides "the line of the year against the cameraman and knocks the "intrinsically paternalistic" thinking in education policy these days" as reported by Alternet.
