In case you missed it, I am really adamant that all people should be able to have the chance to improve themselves. So I am building a new kind of school.
Education is the key to changing direction in life. I want to make sure that anyone can do it.
This school, called Children of Curiosity, is open to everyone, all ages, all backgrounds. Right now I am starting with in-person classes in Madrid, NM where I live. Eventually we will also offer online classes.
Our classes are all pay-what-you-want. I want to make sure that everyone has equal access to a high-quality education.
Classes are not divided by age, but rather by interest and competency. That means that if a high school kid missed the day in 5th grade when they introduced the concept of variables in algebra, and has been lost ever since, that kid can take the bit they missed, and then progress at their own pace.
Classes are broken down in smaller chunks than in traditional schools. That way if you have to miss an important day it sets you back maybe a week, instead of a whole semester.
We have a focus on making learning fun. Because learning IS fun. traditional schools have driven the curiosity out of education, and the engagement has gone with it.
We are all children of curiosity, and embracing that and using it is the best way to learn and become productive members of society.
Thank you for your support in any way that you can!
