Learning is life in action and mind in construction. If learning is frustrating, then students will not be motivated and resist learning. If the experience is fulfilling, then students will be excited to learn and grow passions towards their future careers.
In the past ten years I have been involved in founding and growing three progressive schools in the Bay Area—Synapse School, Imagination School, and Spark Charter. The successes of these schools inspired the founding of Young Outliers. Through these next generation learning environments, students have been transformed from passive, bored, and apathetic students to enthusiastic learners. They discover multiple ways of learning and experience daily fulfillment and enjoyment in how and what they learn. More importantly, these children have grown to value education because they witness the connections made to their everyday lives and how they have the daily opportunity to contribute in making a better world.
