I teach in a brick and mortar institution which takes an obscene amount of money to keep the lights on, salaries paid, kids fed, and the yellow school buses rolling.
There’s a growing consensus that our sacred system of compulsory schooling is a waste of time and money. I’m on record as having no disrespect for the teachers and concerned parents in the system. I’m simply pointing out a few observations, raising questions, and offering options.
Options make us anti-fragile.
What if there was a better way to educate yourself and your children? What if the brick and mortar buildings that eerily resemble prisons were no longer needed? What if students were free to follow their true interests without the use and threat of force?
To answer these questions, look no further than the medium that magically made this article appear on your device.
