I wrote in response to a friend’s musing on education
On the paper, two quick thoughts, not elaborately considered.
1. I would love to see it move into the real of writers like Montessori and Rudolph Steiner (Waldorf). As it is it feels to me too strong on the technical side not enough on the humanities, history, poetry, arts..
2. I like the idea of school as community center. Small park with school, senior center, art center, performance area, and startup incubator center. We have too many old people without children and too many children without adults. Garden and local food a serious plus. I think of the Carnegie Library model, but more extensive.
