Care Why or Why Care?

Care Why or Why Care?

After my last post, discussing the critical importance of the ‘why’ question, I received the following feedback:

The need is to CARE why… so many students do not care about knowledge; they care about “fun” and socialization. They have no idea that their time at school is to provide them with information that will shape their future. 40% drop out before completing secondary school… almost 1/2 of the nation is not prepared to lead the nation into the 22nd Century.

The point is well taken. How can we talk about teaching students to critically process information when we struggle to get them to care about the information in the first place?
