A blog about Learning, about Education, about transformation, about change, about youth voice, about democratic human centered education. I am trying to ask the question "Why we educate" and what my answer means to me as a teacher and how my role shapes society and the whole.
The same goes for school. School is so linear and finite. From Kindergarten on we just check on one box to go the next. Life is messy and complex, it moves in patterns and paths hard to map. I think school should take this in to consideration and loosen the hold on grade levels and seat time. Learning can happen anywhere at anytime and often our best learning happens not when we planned it, but when we are lost and confused.
