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”.
