    Students in my class cited this article on Thursday when discussing the importance of finishing school. The significance is not lost on them. I hope it also isn't lost on us.

      Kris, thank you for commenting on my article. What age and subject do you teach? It is SUCH a good thing when students can be intrinsically motivated to do well in school; in fact, I think it is the only way a child can ultimately be successful. I am glad my article helped in this process!

        These were freshmen in college, one 17 the other 18, who noticed and commented on this.
