“The shift from public school to this kind of environment required that they decide what is it that they want to do. They have to set intentions, so in our home life I started seeing that difference. They would announce: ‘This is what I want to do today!’ In that process, they’ve both become way more self-expressed.”
“Douglas was unhappy about going to school. What he craved above all else was time. Time to do his own projects at home, read his own books, learn what he wanted to learn online and play with his own choice of friends. Between the long, structured day with homework and no recess, there was no time in his day for the things he actually wanted to do. The Agile Learning Center changed all that.”
