The world as I see it
In part one, I spoke about my concerns regarding sending my children to school and why they are unable to adequately prepare our children for the future. I also shared a little about what I am doing about this issue. In part two I want to talk a little more about our approach and why it’s important to disrupt traditional education without disrupting actual learning.
My son and daughter are about to go to school and I am dreading sending them there! I am dreading the systematic dulling of their creativity by the focus on grades, standardized tests and outdated teachings. This post is about what I am doing about it: Empowering children to take their learning into their own hands!
