My students are gifted young men and women who study at a school of choice in the inner-city. They are extremely thoughtful and wise beyond their years, but they remain tainted by their disdain for public education. Many of my students can read well when it comes to surface-based questions. Yet, when they are asked to think critically about their readings or even topics within their history and science classes, they can only tell others' opinions. I want my students to be able to formulate their own opinions by empowering those voices which encourage them to question and speak out for what they believe in. I fear that they feel enslaved by the idea of "that's just the way things are."
