1. This is why Montessori and Waldorf methods have been shown to work over the past 50

years. But of course it is HIPPIE GRANOLA education so it can't possibly work.

2. It may make a comeback after the death-camp pedagogy of this era passes.

 

Optimally, January 2017, to be precise.

Keep your fingers crossed. And do what you can to get a pro-ed president, sec of ed and congress elected in 2016.


Ain't gonna happen any other way.

3. Damn right!

Fingers SERIOUSLY crossed for my grandkids, but not optimistic. HOPE they can find suitable schools, public or private, for them. We ended up in private schools with just the right approach: Learn by DOING!
