We’ve all heard the phrase, “It takes a village to raise a child.” This morning the minute with Maxwell was about community, the village. I love his phrases, “Teamwork makes the dream work. And, one of us is not as smart as all of us.” It’s about shared values and shared vision. That’s what a powerful village does for each child in their community. That is also true for educators, parents and the community. We can teach all the subjects a child needs to graduate high school but it takes the love, care, values and vision of the village to truly raise a successful, happy child.
