    love it! have you watched any ‘sir ken robinson’ talks? he has such an amazing understanding of teaching and learning and humanity.

    • Yes, I’ve posted his videos on my blog and I’ve read his books as well. He’s fantastic. I’m glad you enjoyed the video. I wish everyone would watch it. It’s so important to see how education is failing our kids…how it has failed us. It’s being done on purpose but still, we have to stop it from continuing.

  2. I’ve seen picture of your fabulous classroom and it looks wonderful. 🙂 When you post them, you can see the kids are having fun and it’s a free for all. But yes, the system is outdated and it does not prepare kids for life. Half the older kids don’t know what to do when they get out of school, high school OR college. Jobs are’t there and they don’t know how to navigate through life. It’s sad to see so many young adults living at home doing nothing at all. Depressed and at a loss. Their parents don’t know what to do either. After going into debt to pay for college, they have kids back at home who aren’t working or doing anything. If they are working, many are at minimum wage jobs which are supposed to be temporary. it’s scary and it’s happening more and more. When are they supposed to start their own lives? How can they? Huge problems. Some continue to go into debt by staying in school, which the stats say not to do. It doesn’t help and the kids will be in debt for the rest of their lives. Life skills are needed in school, including how to deal with our government.
