When you read each students bio, you'll notice they are driven, motivated, and happen to be strong writers, but like most students there clearly has not been much attention placed on helping them identify and pursue their passions, talents, and interests.
If we never help students to discover what they love, what they're good at or what they're passionate about, how does all this learning and all these test scores really have intrinsic value or meaning? When the only answer to, "What do I need to know this for?" is "College" or "To pass the test." what are we REALLY preparing students for?
