We have formed a wonderful partnership with the Bronx Center for Science and Mathematics, a public school in the in the South Bronx, NY. This is a great school that has been selected as a model school for the Bronx and was rated this year in the top 4% of all high schools in the US. On December 19 we had a very successful launch of the QUESTion program with a two-hour assembly for the whole school. During the course of the assembly we asked the students to write the most important questions they have in life and gathered about a 1000 questions…which we are going to integrate in our program this semester. We are so thrilled to be working together with a wonderful team of teachers, students and administrators. Together we are planning to co-create the best approach to integrate fundamental questions of meaning and purpose into the culture of the school and we’re aiming to create a model that can be replicated in other schools. The Principal told us that his school has been doing a very good job “preparing students for college and for career” and that he feels it is very important also to “prepare students for life.” The school will offer three daily elective classes as part of the QUESTion Project that will run from February until the end of the school year. A lot of work and joy ahead!
"One expression of freedom together, is to be prepared to take responsibility for the culture of the future. So many things that we see as fate is because we don’t dare to take responsibility. The QUESTion Project is taking a promising step towards impacting the culture of education.”
