Animal School is a very interesting perspective on parenting - and teaching. The movie is about 5 minutes and definitely worth watching. Sometimes I just wonder about the whole structure of school as we know it . . .
Toward the end of the movie were a couple of sentences that resonated with me (you can read the entire text). My substitutions are in brackets:
Your child [student] did not come with a direction booklet.I wonder how many kangaroos we are creating, how we can free the bees, and if maybe our schools are currently designed for sheep . . .
Effective parents [teachers] are always learning, studying, and customizing the instructions for their individual child [classes, students].
