And on the other hand ...

In contrast to my item yesterday, which I consider 'reality' (in my own biased way), we have the following piece on a Sudbury alternative school No Teachers, no homework .

The article contains this gem: 'While some may question how the format works with reading and math, "the truth is, that's the easy stuff,'' Ekendiz said. "Our children will need skills like self-understanding, self-motivation and creative problem-solving.'''

Hands up those who think that the typical child from this school will find reading and math 'easy'.
