Teaching kids by getting out of their way
How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses letting kids learn what they want to learn, teach by suggesting topics or posing open ended questions and let them solve it themselves
José Urbina López Primary School sits next to a dump just across the US border in Mexico. The school serves residents of Matamoros, a dusty, sunbaked city of 489,000 that is a flash point in the war on drugs. There are regular shoot-outs, and it’s not uncommon for locals to find bodies scattered in the street in the morning. To get to the school, students walk along a white dirt road that parallels a fetid canal.
How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses - A new breed of educators, inspired by everything from the Internet to evolutionary psychology, neuroscience, & AI, are inventing radical new ways for children to learn, grow, & thrive. To them, knowledge isn’t a commodity that’s delivered from teacher to student but something that emerges from the students’ own curiosity-fueled exploration.

18 Reasons Why Doctors and Lawyers Homeschool Their Children. Good article, although there was no need to denigrate those moms who choose to stay at home and wear long skirts, as if that is a bad thing (The whole putting down the "homeschool marm" thing IS a little tired).
