Education (Educating Kids) cannot succeed as long as it is Compulsory Schooling (Coercion).

Profile of Ny Lilleskole in Denmark.

To make schooling work, we must

  • stop making it compulsory

  • provide non-school methods of Certification

  • have schools stop ranking/rating people (Bell Curve)

  • have schools stop making pscho-babble evaluations of students, and just give them grades

    • have these grades be "owned" by the student, never distributed without permission, originals handed over to student

Emphasis on Learning By Doing.
