Education is important. Something that should be constantly talked about, reviewed and improved upon.
I have a friend who just pulled one of their kids from the school system to home school because she believes that her kid is not being taught anything.
Another friend told me that in one of her kids classes they watch a couple of movies every week. These are not educational movies but Disney movies.
Now my kids' schools are great. I am impressed with most of the teachers in my community. However I am wondering if that is the norm or are we just an exception
The questions that I have are:
Why are bad systems tolerated in our society?
Can we make great systems even better?
Seth Godin has some interesting ideas about education and its future.
