If you had the opportunity to do one thing differently, what would it be?
A friend of mine and I were talking about how we have been working outside for the last few days and how much they enjoy it.
She has been pretty supportive of me choosing to hs even if she doesn't fully understand why.
She did ask me one thing that really made me think. She asked if I could make one small change in the public school system, what would it be. Talk about a loaded question and how much time do you have. :)
I really thought about it and I didn't choose curriculum or anything like that because I truly do believe everyone learns differently, I told her the change I would make would allow the kids to be comfortable while learning. Think local bookshop at story time. Comfy chairs, bean bags, body pillows, something other than a hard wood chair and attached desk.
Mine works so much better when not 'confined' and comfortable.
So, long story short... if you could make a small change in public schools, what would it be?
