The Innovative Educator: I hate school, but I love learning.

The Innovative Educator: I hate school, but I love learning.:

"That is what high school student and author of the book One Size Does Not Fit All, Nikhil Goyal, recently posted on his Facebook timeline. What followed were 99 comments. Many from peers deeply invested in and trained by the system to believe you need school to get an education. They represent those who have accepted and/or know nothing else but this new and narrow system that our corporate reformers and politicians have created for us.

But the reality is not so bleak. Nikhil is not the only one who feels this way.  A growing number of young people have awoken to the fact that you don't need to go to school to get an education and, sadly, sometimes school actually gets in the way of learning."
