I came across this Tedx video of 13 year old Logan LePlante who talks about hacking his schooling to be happy.
I agree with his over all assessment of education. Schools are heavily weighted in math, and reading, social studies, and science. You know all of the things that have to be tested. But do we really think about students being happy? Lately, we have been focusing on healthier food, and getting students to move and exercise.
How often have students taken over some of their education to make themselves happy? Well, check out this video and listen to one student who did.
I would be curious to see your reactions to this video. I thought for a teenager, he did a great job of discussing his point, and backing it up. I think it is important for young people to take a major stake in their education.
