Discounted Emotional Development

More from Rob about Scientific Revolutions and How we Teach and Learn:
"Education as we think of it today has become an expensive, truly boring process, that fails to give society what it needs. We have lost the centrality of the need to develop character because we have discounted the emotional and physical development entirely. We then wonder why so many of our kids seem lost and act out. It is based on a process of instruction which violates the core learning process, experience."
In the discussion that follows, Cyn makes some great points in rebuttal, pointing out that although the public system has its flaws, her kids both found their way through using different paths and thrived.
