Get rid of the box

Image source can be found here.

This image made me sad. This is what we are required to do with our students in this standardized-testing world. There is very little room for anything more. The image is referred to as education editting. Others have said to think outside the box.

My take: get rid of the box. Keep the circles, the rectangles, the triangles and squares. The cones, the spheres, the cylinders and trapezoids. I know, it should rhyme, but I’m no Dr Seuss. Instead of trying to fix a system that is not working, perhaps we need to come up with a new way of thinking and doing and being.
