what it means to be free
freedom is such a loaded word..
what does it exist primarily to provide..
freedom from what.
freedom to what.
we are in the midst of defining what it means to be free - for teachers and students
there is no way to measure the effectiveness of a teacher.
in the past was complete freedom and pure art
today completely structured and all science
purpose of public ed is helping people understand what it means to be free
what it means to be free is helping young people to develop capacity to exercise self-control in finding and fulfilling their own unique purpose in life
ideal model is both freedom and structure, both science and art
fractals - yay.
freedom is best unleashed through simple shared structures not unbounded prairies
