Recorded 30 April 2019
Building upon the introduction to Free Progress Education (FPE) recorded on 26 April 2019, Marco Masi elucidates the need to create alternatives in education to allow students and teachers to express their potentiality. Those present bring alternate strands into the conversation, depicting personal resistance to learning in standard environments; applying teaching skills to parenting and parenting skills to teaching; inquiring about motivation and passion and the right balance (in classroom size; independence and mentorship; etc.)
The participants also reach into the core contemporary issues of education. Ed states that at some point we traded in our society for an economy, which has had profound effects on the school system. With capitalism at the core of the educational business, the changes proposed by Marco and others are a great challenge to implement. The unsustainable drivers of the current system(s) will have to change and visions of change that seek to find the common core will need more ears. Thank you for listening!
