Wouldn't you agree that we want kids to respect adults because their judgment is good rather than because they have the power to hurt kids who don't obey them?


I think our last argument was about the words "play" and "work" as applied to schooling.


I keep pounding away at this issue because I agree with you: It's not enough to criticize without offering alternatives.


I am struck by how many educators and parents are fed up and frustrated with the direction in which we have been headed.


We need to design schools that build on the fact that children are ready, willing, and eager from birth to master the world.
