Education: Thinking out the box
Education has such a narrow definition in most peoples mind, I find. For me education is more than academic - it is preparing a child for life; which has to mean that each and every child has to have a different education as each and every child is going to live a different life. Here is a very interesting article written by Andrew Pudewa who is our Writing Teacher on DVD each week. He travels all over the USA and Canada teaching. (Isn't it great to be able to have the best teacher in the world teaching our kids in the comfort of our homes!)
I think his kids are home schooled and that he is a Christan but he makes no comment here on home schooling or Cristian education - just some very interesting observations on the best schools he has visited!
A must read for sure ....
