Puzzle Piece Hacking

I liked the idea of hacking the education system.  I think it sounds really cool for Logan LaPlante to be able to hack his education and stay at home but I don’t know if that is a realistic option for a lot of people  A lot of families are double income homes and rely on that money to be coming in for the family to survive.  It would be pretty hard for some people to have one parent stay home an let their kids do this.  I know that there would have been any way to do it when I was growing up.  This is a good starting point though.  Start a movement and then move up the scale. In five to ten years we start to see schools popping up that are made to accommodate the new learning style.  It would be really nice to see happen.  A school system that doesn’t force feed everybody the same thing.  The education system is like a Henry Ford assembly line.  They are not creating individuals as much as they are creating the same kinds of pieces over and over again for the same exact puzzle.  I feel like it would be good to hack the entire school system.  To make them start focusing on fostering creativity and individuality among students.  As of right now they are just puzzle pieces.  Waiting their turn to be put in the right spot so they can fill a void. Create classes where things are learned in a kinesthetic environment in stead of sitting and watching power points all day, being force fed knowledge that you will forget when the semester is over.  I do believe in a base line of education for each student so they are familiar with common areas such as math, English, history, social studies, and whatever else.  I don’t think that they need to be taught to the extent they are to every single student.  Instead of forcing students to go all the way to trigonometry, why don’t we teach them the applications of math that will be used in everyday life.  It seems like the education system has turned into a mill that produces copies and the college system has started to resemble more of a business than a school.  Somebody needs to hack this system fast before it continues to progress like a decreasing exponential function.  Ha, I guess I was wrong and all those math classes did come in handy.
