Yes, I do have an education

education

This is a bonus episode in  which we look at one issue – “education”

My guest is Laura Sanderfer – author of Courage to Grow and founder of Acton Academy

Key Points:

  • Knowing – vs doing and being
  • Filling our heads with facts and memorizing multiplication tables may not be a productive way of building skills that will lead to a lucrative job or be the basis for starting a profitable business. 
  • Acton Academy does not have teachers………they have “guides”
  • They use a very different “upside down” power structure that gives control and decision making to the students.
  • The students are called “Eagles” and each child is expected to experience “the hero’s journey.”
  • See Acton Academy to learn more or to start your own academy
