  8. 8. Too often mark becomes a sign of sameness. We seek a mark/diploma/grade. We hope to earn value by being marked/stamped/approve d/checked-off. We think/hope that makes us distinguishable, but perhaps, it’s perpetuating an asleep sameness. Become fit to be sold/marketed? Is that what we really want/need/crave..?
  9. 9. http://redefineschool.com/policy-glossary/ Perhaps what our souls desire.. is simply being useful/beautiful/honest. No show, no fluff. Just doing what we can’t not do, our art/part/fittingness.

  13. 13. Perhaps we’re getting in the way, making this all too difficult/clouded. What if the solution is to stop spinning. What if the solution is to give trust a chance. No more prep, training, management. No more meetings, organizing, elevator pitching. Lobbying, begging, campaigning. What if we trust the findings of many, that mirror Sugata’s and Iwan’s, and we give trust a go.

What if we prototype a city/district getting funding via just 2 policies. Ones that address two fundamental human needs – attachment & authenticity:
  21. 21. community buy-in to have these daily conversations: if everyone is having these 2 convos every day, 30+3 min, the rest of day is theirs. plus they get suggested connections everyday from the 3 min data. plus they get free access to and input for resources throughout the city. government/powers-that-be buy-in for ongoing funding: if having these 2 daily convos works, (enlivens the city: less crime/poverty/health issues/etc), the city/district gets funded per census, rather than seat time & test scores,
