“When you give kids a puzzle or a problem, it has natural holding power. They naturally want to try to address that puzzle or that problem. Anything we teach has to be in service of the self, of peers, of the classroom, of the community, of the world and the environment. And one thing I love about Issues 21 is how it does that.”
