The Game of Achieve and Advance
Here’s a snippet of the article:
Education is a classic game of Achieve and Advance. It’s easy to define the field of play, the players, the rules, the boundaries, and what it means to score points and win. Once you get through those early, fun years in elementary school, you are segregated into groups based on your performance, often named for birds to appear non-judgmental. As the years go by, the game is more serious, yet always emphasizing the need to get the right answer. Achieve results. Move to the next big thing. Study harder. Learn more. Accomplish more. Get your best score. Advance. Outright competition, in addition to self-competition. The next move in Achieve and Advance is to Achieve and Win. But what happens when your best performance is not the best performance.
