    [UN-IVERSITY] Influence Cap

    A conversation about ethics and influence, and the emerging difficult choices between honesty and integrity. In media, what is the threshold for flying below the radar? In our personal and professional lives, the time for outreach has ended. The priority now is self-defense. But this does not mean influence has been capped in these situations. Stop with counter-narratives, and try to inspire curiosity. Friend and former public school teacher Adam shows up, and provides a happy conclusion for the meeting.

    So Much To Look Forward To! [Un-iversity]

    With Scott Hambrick and Lisa from AUTONOMY, interacting for the first time! This is a fast-paced and intense conversation that offers an ahead-of-time, behind-the-scenes look at what happened on the podcast this month. Before Scott arrives, I test my ideas against a large and energetic Un-iversity group. Theme: balancing outside-your-sphere-of-control cynicism with inside-your-sphere-of-control optimism.

CORE TOPIC - Why does school suck?

John Taylor Gatto

CORE TOPIC - What does self-directed education look like?

Peter Gray - Self-Directed Education

The realization that school sucks actually marks the beginning of a new and exciting educational journey.

Welcome to SchoolSucksProject.com. We strive to provide young people with the building blocks of intellectual, financial and lifestyle independence. This includes in-depth explorations into higher-level thinking, organization and productivity, emotional and physical health, habit and lifestyle optimization, history and philosophy, psychology, self-directed learning, entrepreneurship, and communication/negotiation strategies. It's all essential information, but almost none of it is taught in school. Our content is ideal for frustrated high school and college students, home-educating parents, and adults who are interested in independently furthering their education and achieving self-actualization.
