Why assume?

Posted on: October 30, 2018

I look forward to George Couros’ almost daily blogging of his thoughts on all things schooling and education. His work might be what I tweet the most.

But when he suggested that we start with positive assumptions, I had to pause for thought.

I get his intent — give parents, students, and teachers the benefit of the doubt when helping people change. Positive thought leads to positive action.

As ideal and somewhat pragmatic as this mindset might be, I would rather find out what they think and feel first, and start from that point. To do otherwise and assume is to build castles in the air.

I pay heed to this adage: Never assume unless you want to make an ASS of U and ME.
