I was directed some time ago to a most interesting online video, assembled by Ellen C. Braun, entitled Animal School. It’s based on a story that has been around for a while, and was used in an Artscroll book by "Preparing Our Children for Success" by R. Greenwald.
The video (and the original story, in its many variations) should be seen/read by anyone who parents, teaches, or otherwise affects the lives of children.
What’s even more fascinating, though also in many ways sad, are the comments that hundreds have left on the raisingsmallsouls.com website about the video. A whole-hearted attempt to share an important message has been turned, by some, in a battles – between schools and home-schooling, between teachers and parents, between those with differeing views on how children with special needs should be educated, etc. Where is the love, people?
