For me, this prompts a few questions.

  • In what ways do we currently make school more like art, less like work?
  • How can we change and make school more like art and less like work?
  • As educators, do we need to first ask ourselves these questions? Is our “work” more like work or more like art? Once we struggle with that question, and the varying layers of complexity, can we then move on to asking that question of the culture and environment we create in our schools?
