Is anybody else here really interested in education in general?

Recommended Posts

I've loved teaching/tutoring since I started helping in the kindergarten classroom when I was in 5th grade. I went to ed school, and found that I disagreed with a lot of the philosophies taught in there. That's what attracted me to homeschooling, before I became a parent.

Yes, I am fascinated by education in general. If I won the big lottery, I would fund education research.


The most recent books I have read on education are: "Liberating Learning" by Terry Moe and "Disrupting Class" by Clayton M. Christensen. Both very interesting, books and actually optimistic about the future of education - but distinctly un-classical. :) Karla

I'm interested in it too, but my DD has probably read more books on it than me. She's thinking about majoring in elementary education so she loves reading about it. :D She knows everything about TWTM too and agrees with that philosophy above most others and she'd definately be starting a classical school too if she had the money.
