Fun Friday: Hackschooling Video

This TEDxTalk caught my attention this past week about changing the mindset about education and our children.  This young 13 year old, Loran LaPlante, gives a great talk about he is changing his education to focus more on being happy and healthy versus simply preparing to get a job.  He introduces an approach he calls Hackschooling which is helping him achieve his goal.  My favorite quote of the video is:  

“Much of education today is oriented towards making a living, rather than making a life”.
