    After reading Seth Godin’s Stop Stealing Dreams, I am not so sure we need to make college look anymore like K-12 than it already is — a glorified high school for many. Highly recommend Stop Stealing Dreams and then discussing where to go with college and K-12…this has made me stop and re-think things on both the K-12 and college levels…Very, very interesting read.
