Whole Child education is a return to the concept that each child is unique and special, with unlimited potential.
Education once meant getting your hands dirty in activities like gardening, engaging in real problems, and other collaborative projects that benefited the community. Knowledge was assessed not by testing, but rather by evaluating the unique talents and activities children immersed themselves in. Teachers honored each child as an individual, serving as mentors with care and compassion, and focused on giving each child what he or she most needed.
Whole Child Challenge pushes the concept further.
We place this challenge in each of our hands. As Americans, it’s up to us to provide a new path for our children and, in so doing, ensure a vibrant future for our democracy.
