Strides are being made in education, people! First President Obama’s announcement that he is going to try to make college affordable for everyone and now VCU announces that they are more interested in focusing on the whole child rather than one piece of that child. Hallelujah, what a novel idea. There is a movement in this country to move away from so much testing and focus more intimately on teaching and learning. This is a big step in the right direction for higher education, especially from a school like Virginia Commonwealth University. I truly hope that schools all over this country will start to follow suit.
