    [BONUS] The State of STEM – A Report From the Field

    (AUDIO, 108 MINUTES) STEM = Science + Technology + Engineering + Math My friend works in educational technology sales and he recently attended a STEM conference.

Some of the student projects are impressive in scope but their attitudes about and plans for the world are pretty foreboding. He judged one competition called "Prepared Presentations." The topic on which students were presenting: The Future Is Ours. After listening to summaries of these student presentations, I certainly hope not. Or click HERE

Is this more of the same - the safest and most socially acceptable way to think disguised as the revolution, to use the angst of young people as political fuel? Or has Donald Glover created something more meaningful? This is the video that finally helped me understand the cultural appropriation argument. I'll explain.

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 (deschooling), home-educating parents (unschooling), and adults who are interested in independently furthering their education and achieving self-actualization (self-directed learning). To see every topic at a glance, check out the site map.
