Discussion Question #5: Possible Promises
Write a list of 10 possible things that you would want to do if you were president . . . and share one of those wonderful ideas here. Sometimes the line between possible and impossible is blurred--a millimeter (or a minute or a vote) can separate a silly dream from a very real accomplishment. If you're not sure whether your promise would be "possible" or "impossible," list it here--why not dream big?
Update [Oct 2012]: If you think "No Homework" is an impossible presidential promise, think again. French President Francois Hollande just proposed this very thing as part of his redesign of the French education system. If our leaders did this in the U.S., I think a lot of kids (and parents and teachers) would say: "Merci!"
