What if students chose problems – real world or philosophical to work on instead of courses?
What if each student assembled the team of teachers best suited to help him or her tackle the problem?
What if teachers spent their days meeting with and guiding students and planning was based on student need and not a set curriculum?
What if kids saw school as a lab in which to work on problems and issues that have relevance in the world rather than as something to endure along the way to the “real world”?
What if school connected to the real world rather than tried to imitate the real world as a way to prepare students?
