Why Schools are Not Built for Learning with Will Richardson

Will Richardson is changing the way we think about education. He quests with us about the role of school. We unpack the unacknowledged truth about most schools today and how it’s impacting our kids future.

What is the purpose of sending kids to of school ANYWAYS?! We get into what we are REALLY trying to accomplish through schooling in the long run. What do we expect schools to do and what can we imagine schools to be…now and in the long run?

Not only does he share something beautiful, he also gives interesting advice from a parent’s point of view. Dive into this broader philosophical discussion with us- we hope it will inspire you too!
