Description

Pink Time is a revolutionary educational advancement that allows students to miss class several times a semester to pursue their own passions and interests. Students are then given the opportunity to grade themselves based on what they did with their time. Inspired by Daniel Pink, this action is often critiqued by academic professionals who believe that unmotivated students will abuse the opportunity. While some students underutilize the chance to do whatever they want, many students that have engaged in Pink Time emphasize the importance of taking the time to focus on their passions. Whether it is simple or complex, students are often left to tap their creative abilities. When faced with multiple academic and professional pressures, students often lose touch with their motivations and passions. When given express time to focus on student desires, instead of classroom desires, individuals are able to redefine their time in higher education.
