In tonight’s debate, Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio said in his closing statement:
…we must address the trauma that our children are experiencing in our schools….
Finally, someone said it.
Here’s the deal:
By changing how we teach languages in our schools, by using CI but in a way that works, we can’t remove the threat of gun violence, but we can greatly remove at least a part the school trauma that our kids experience every day in their cookie cutter and memorization mind prisons.
We can and we will increase the mental health of our language students from the way it used to be. We can and we will do our part, indeed, our patriotic duty to our kids so that at least during one part of the day they feel important, smart and included, if not entirely safe physically.
