Learn about Education with me

I'm increasingly interested in understanding education:  what it is, what it could be, and what it should be.I'm sure that our youth and adults and society are not being well-served by our educational industry.  It is poorly understood, has outdated ideas and methods, and is self-serving and stagnant.

This blog is part of my research and idea development in this area.  Welcome aboard.
