Tim Elmore is guiding us to think outside the box for high school education.
What he says has merit! The way things are being run now is not fostering independent learning for our teens.
Then they get thrown into college and flounder a bit.
What if we changed the way we think about how we educate?
What if we took this pandemic and used it to make positive changes in our education system?
What if as parents and educators we looked at the studies already done and use them to pivot the system?
What if we encouraged our teens to pick an elective topic that they WANTED TO LEARN ABOUT?
I would venture to say that teens would experience more of a joy and love for learning vs. drudgery. It might actually pull the passions out of our teen's and save us lots of college money in the long run.
