Taking Nerdy to a New Level

So today’s education film inspired me in a million different ways, not the least of which is that I need to either marry rich or start raising venture capital to start my own school.

I watched last night’s Frontline episode.

I know, I know. Totally nerdy. Deal with it.

Talk about solving all of the problems in public education, this episode had it. To sum up in two short steps:

Step 1: Kids have to be involved in projects that draw from all curricular areas, and those projects need to fulfill a personal interest or need.

Step 2: Kids need to know they are cared for.

That’s it. That’s the silver bullet.

The segments aren’t too long so you should give them a look-see if you have some spare time.
