Most of us went to school and believe school is necessary for children and youth to learn and become educated. What if this isn’t true? What if the way school is organized actually makes learning harder for many people? What if young people can go to college and obtain professional work without going to high school? Dr. Naomi Fisher, clinical psychologist and author of Changing Our Minds: How Children Can Take Control of their Own Learning, will join us for a discussion of learning, motivation, and educational environments that foster meaningful learning for young people. Q&A will follow.
