honesty

16 Mar

i was watching mike & mike in the morning this morning, a real indulgence during spring break, and they started talking about the jets/giants new stadium.  through a series of comments the got in to a discussion about honesty and mike greenberg (great last name!) asked the question about when it became socially acceptable and to some extend expected, that people lie.  it saddened me that we may have come to a point that honesty is no longer expected.  this should come as a great shock to some who know me because i’m as cynical as they come but in then end i would prefer to think as honesty as the rule and not the exception.  as a teacher i generally scoffed at how contrived character education became – but the more i think about it, the more i think it is imperative that we find a place for some sort of character ed in the classroom, in a way that is authentic and meaningful.
