The challenge of teaching is to try and get teenagers, who care about a lot of shit, to care about things that matter. How do you convince them that MTV and vapid pop music donít mater, but books and writing do? How do you get kids to realize they could really make a difference if they put the same amount of effort into learning as they do into choosing just the right outfit to wear to the mall? How do you convince them that the real world isnít the one being sold to them? Thatís what I want to teach.
