    Michael Malice On Self-Discipline [PODCAST #559]

    self-discipline

    Michael Malice is an accomplished author, celebrity ghostwriter, Twitter provocateur, podcaster and cable news commentator. He joins me for what begins as a conversation about "health" and fitness practices, but then it evolves into a fascinating exploration of habit and self-discipline. I approached this personal development topic through the lens of fitness because Michael has expressed that the pursuit continues to be a challenge for him. I thought it would be more interesting to discuss a subject where Michael is trying to put the puzzle pieces together, versus one of his areas of expertise (anarchist philosophy, objectivism, North Korea and the New Right). For me, fitness has proven to be the foundation of a better life, and great teacher for ...

    The Making of A Mindless Movement – A Teacher’s Perspective On Student Walkouts [PODCAST #556]

    This April we'll be showered with more misguided student walkouts and other "teen-led" gun control activism displays. Shortly after releasing Podcast #552: #ENOUGH – With Thaddeus Russell I received an email from a public school teacher who wished to remain anonymous. I thought this was an important perspective to share with you, and I was grateful for the opportunity to give this teacher a platform. Hi Brett, I am an elementary school teacher and a relatively new listener to your show. When the School Walkout happened, I was compelled to write about it. Then, I heard your latest episode with Thad Russell! Many of the thoughts you shared are also echoed in my piece. Perhaps I am preaching to the ...

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.
