    At School Sucks, we strive to provide young people with the building blocks of intellectual, financial and lifestyle independence.

    [PODCAST] #469: Nick Hazelton – Teaching and Learning Through Facebook Conflicts

    Nick Hazelton of an-yak.com is a young entrepreneur who opted out of school a couple years ago to pursue his passions and teach himself. He is back on the show to discuss a recent question he posed in the School Sucks Facebook group. It started one of the more educational and productive thread I have seen in the group in a while. Nick's Questions: Since there seems to be some fracturing of this group on the left-right paradigm, I want to hear more conversation about this paradigm and how much it really matters. Most people in this group are Liberty minded(probably close to 100%). We all value freedom and peace, I presume. Most of us are in favor of voluntarism ...

CORE TOPIC - Why does school suck?

John Taylor Gatto

CORE TOPIC - What does real learner-driven 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.
