    Bonus Show: Kevin Smith’s Red State, Nonviolent Communication and Rand Paul (MP3)

    (A/V CLUB)Recorded Live on March 7th, 2013 This show meanders very nicely! But probably a little too much to become a podcast. Really enjoyed this conversation. We discuss the complexity of Kevin Smith's movie, Red State, which eventually leads to talk about Rand Paul's filibuster, nonviolent communication and the trivium.

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.
