When 13-year-old Logan LaPlante grows up, he wants to be happy and healthy. He discusses how hacking his education is helping him achieve this goal.
Logan has the freedom that comes with homeschooling to explore his interests. As he explains in his TED talk below, happiness and creativity are the focus of his education. He's able to engage directly with his interests because he's not stuck behind the walls of an institutional school all day, everyday.
The most innovative entrepreneurs of the future will be people who are able to hack the current system and create something new. As Buckminster Fuller said,
"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."
Resources have blossomed with increasing popularity of homeschooling, providing endless opportunities for children to turn their creative ideas into reality. And with the time and freedom to pursue what they enjoy, these will be the adults of the future who hack the current system to provide outside-of-the-box solutions and businesses.
What do you think? Is this a way you could see your children living? What is stopping you from making it happen? We'd love to know!
