    [PODCAST] #538: The Block Is Hot – With Roger Ver

My guest today is a man who has been one of the most prominent figures in Bitcoin promotion, education, growth and recent controversies. Roger Ver was the first investor in many successful Bitcoin startups, and he has worked for over 5 years on the adoption of Bitcoin as an alternative to fiat money, both inside and outside the voluntaryist community. Roger has referred to this effort as "the separation of money and state." And as far as financial freedom is ...

    [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 ...

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.
