As i came across "Rigor Redifined" by Tony Wagner it described how our schools weren't even preparing us for the future, even our top schools. It showed us that companies are shipping jobs out of the country and it is harder to find work these days. I find this devistating because when I grow older it's going to be harder for me to find a job then it was five years ago. To me this makes me scared and fearful for my future. All this means is our kids have to work hard in school and achieve excellence to stay on top or else things will fall out of our grasp before we know it. Our excellence is the key for a better future and we decide what we do with it. Those are the thoughts that came into my mind as i read "Rigor Redifined" by Tony Wagner.

  1. I really like your one sentence: "Our excellence is the key for a better future and we decide what to do with it." It's very true, and many people don't see that these days. They can slack off and just think that Mommy and Daddy can pay for everything. The reality is, when you're out on your own in the real world, Mommy and Daddy may not be able to help you like they did while you were growing up. You have to try for yourself. You have to want things for yourself. I really liked your opinion on this blog!
