Alternative forms of thinking, education and adhd,

Most of the ideas in this video have been around for a long long time. The idea that the standard school's model of prepping people for factory work is very outdated, that intelligence as it's currently tested doesn't really measure much and that ADHD while existing in some cases (I worked with a kid who has so little ability to focus he got distracted from being sad about 15 seconds after another kid hurt him pretty badly) but that by and large it's a false epidemic. But he puts it all together very nicely in a very engaging package. Enjoy!

  1. Wow. Thanks Mike. That was a great learning experience -- provocative. TY for posting it. Whew! home schooling for all? Alternative schools -- usually cost $. And I've heard some nightmare experiences there too. Good for discussion.
