Not going to school
This is a thought-provoking article from a Russian woman who decided to stop sending her kids to school. I have long thought that most kids would be better off sitting in a circle under a tree talking with some wise Socratic sage, or wandering through the fields learning about plants and nature, than going to school as we know it. And with the imminent birth of my own child, I'm wondering what kind of education I'll want for him.
