Big box education is on the way out. Instead, imagine a future with schools of every variety available for mixing and matching, like sushi on a platter. Micro-schools, Waldorf Schools, part-time schools and more. And non-school alternatives like internships and single classes. That’s the future as seen by Matt Hern, an advocate for what he calls de-schooling. In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, learning outside the box. And, redefining normal for kids on the short bus.
Jonathan Mooney says that "normal" is a social construct, not a medical one. Dan Zanes writes music for children of all ages. Matt Hern advocates alternative education. Michel Piechowski describes the way gifted children experience their lives. Sherman Alexie tries to teach an end to tribalism.
