Dr. Peter Gray, researcher and author of Free to Learn, will present research explaining how increased school pressure combined with the decline in opportunities for self-chosen, self-directed activities impacts children’s mental health. Dr. Gray will discuss ways we can address this problem, for our own children as well as our communities and larger society. Q&A will follow.
