GIVEN THE LOW RESPONSE (CURRENTLY 1!) THIS WILL BE HELD AT OUR HOUSE. EMAIL [masked] FOR ADDRESS AND DIRECTIONS.
We'll look at the ways in which schooling can negatively impact students' views of themselves, their ability to learn, and their ability to be self-directed in life. The goal will be to build a list of potential projects or activities that could help such students.
Not all students have bad experiences at school, but I believe that the one things schools are really good at doing is teaching most students that they are not good at learning. While the narrative of schooling is the growth and cultivation of individual capability, the reality of schooling for most students is learning to live in a system of control and compliance.
Current students welcome and encourged to join.
