What would happen if urban school systems adopted as their theory of change? I think it would revolutionize #edreform

we don't need others to decide/plan/train ahead of time.. competency-based-pathways et al.
that might tweak ed a bit, help us to feel better. but it's not the empowerment that could exponentiate.. revolutionize. no?

yeah. so where is it that we get to question if these are the results we want proven. you know?
stay in school for what? move to next grade for what? graduation to/from what?
better? absolutely. lovely.
betterness? we can do more by managing it less.. by not adding these great ideas/programs on top of this assumed curriculum/basic learning. [denise pope, stanford, over 90% cheat, thinking of it more as survival]
attachment & authenticity..

Fun doing this interview for @davedelaney 's blog last week. "World and Meet People"

you go AJ -
Four years ago when I quit a very successful and average existence as a finance executive in Manhattan, I vowed to spend my days being a nomad. I want to soak every last ray of light, every last scent, every last savory foreign dish, every last hug I can from this beautiful planet while I have the privilege to inhabit it.

another little something people held up in schools not per choice.. could be working on..
