As I reflect on my December project that enabled the boys to look at minimum wage, gender pay disparity and financial dignity, I wondered if alongside the mathematical knowledge, did the boys have any shifts in thinking? Did they have empathy for others? Will they develop into the leaders of our community/world who will try and make changes at the local if not national and global level?
As I sifted through reflections, I came across many ideas, connections and proposed actions. This student empathized and seemed to connect (although missed that question) with helping our city and beyond.
