Well it’s spring- time for the snow and ice to finally give way to warm breezes, buds on trees, bulbs poking their heads through the mulch and then there is…BASKETBALL! Schools and workplaces will be overrun with bracket picks, slow motion replays of dunks, and David and Goliath stories of small schools beating top-seeded teams to blow everyone’s brackets. March Madness is such a phenomena that Warren Buffet and Quicken Loans are offering a $1 billion prize to anyone with the perfect bracket. (I’m betting that Nate Silver is excluded from the offer.) So how is this relevant to what I typically write about in this blog? Well – it’s aspirational I guess – to get us to think about what could happen if we could get as passionate about helping students select a good career and adults find a good job as we do when cheering for “our” teams to win.
