(#SchoolSucksAcrossAmerica - DAY TEN - OCT 24 - Touring the Columbus Learning Co-Op in Columbus, OH)
This great connection might have never happened without the SSAA tour. Devin Fraze is the founder and director of the Columbus Learning Co-Op. He was once on track to become a certified public school math teacher, but he chose to opt out of college and pursue his own path. This story is amazing.
Devin and I discuss our similar paths away from classroom teaching, John Taylor Gatto, religion, stoicism, problems with math instruction, overcoming self-doubt, and the future of self-directed learning.
Our conversation also includes the 2 questions:
- What is your "school sucks" story? In other words, how did you come to realize that your schooling was not an education?
- What actions did you take to solve this problem and become a self-directed learner?
