Every Child Has A Story To Tell The Life Without School Podcast

    • Padres

Asking our children to all learn the same things, at the same times, in the same groups, in the same spaces, with only the same ages…
…is effectively asking them to become the same as everyone else.
It’s asking them to think less about their true selves, and more about what the most accepted version of it might be. It’s asking them to see their uniqueness as a bad thing, and fitting in as good. No, more than that – critical.
And to me, this fundamentally undermines what being a human being is all about.
See, I believe every child has their own story. And in this episode of the Life Without School Podcast, I want to make a plea to let more of them tell it.
