00:00:13 Favorite thing about working about young learners.
00:05:28:17 Examples where you said “No, I can’t do this. I don’t like it.”
00:13:32:21 If you’re a parent who is frustrated right now and cannot handle big changes right now but wants to do something different, what would be your advice?
00:21:12:19 Tell us about your new program.
00:28:31:12 What is your prediction of what will happen in K-12 with all the change happening in the world?
00:32:27:04 If you could create a metaphor for comparing conventional schooling with what we’re doing in Acton?
The kids will make you fired up. That’s your “why” and that’s your reason.
I would tell parents, “Listen to that inner voice that’s telling you ‘I went to conventional school, I turned out fine.’” I don’t want “fine” for my kids, I want them to be able to create a magical world for themselves and to live this amazing story.
We get stuck into making decisions and parenting based on:
- If it’s going to be too hard or not. And
- What do other people think?
