Great article on how we're failing to connect with those around us. I'm pretty skeptical about gun control (I'm a fence sitter) but regardless of the existence of guns, the existence of this level of emotional pain and anguish should be setting off alarm bells.

So how much weight do people attribute to homework?
A grade is "an inadequate report of an inaccurate judgment by a biased and variable judge of the extent to which a student has attained an undefined level of mastery of an unknown proportion of an indefinite amount of material."

Some great advice!
Kids who have freedom and unsupervised time grow up to be responsible, resilient, and self-reliant. How do we help them meet the world on their own?

This is a follow up to the last video I posted on "taxation is theft". Its a little longer, but goes into a little more detail. Its worth a watch if you have any interest in the non-aggression principle (and how could you not be interested in this principle?!)

Ever thought about sending your kids to an alternative school? Ever considered not sending your kids to school at all? Interested in this line of thinking? Take a look at this article - its a great read and poses some very interesting questions.

I am careful to check what they learn in school and I do my own form of education after hours, but we haven't commited to home schooling.  At the moment they both enjoy school, but I will yank them out if it becomes an issue.  At the moment we are lacking in the free time needed to provide a proper home education.  This of course is likey by design.  40-60 hour work weeks and both parents going to work makes it nearly impossible to home school.

Wow, agile around the family?! Crazy! I kinda like the idea of an agile board in the home.
Parents using agile practices with their children are seeking to help them be better team members, to have personal responsibility, and to be less reliant on their parents as they grow up.

Great school sucks episode as usual. I've watched a few brave the world videos, but after this I'll definitely be listening to more.

Gone are the days of the unyielding God-fearing mother as the archetype of good parenting, suggests a recent article from the Los Angeles Times. According to multiple reports, research has shown that a secular upbringing may be healthier for children. According to a 2010 Duke University study, kids

Fantastic and emotional video about the value of character in society. Well worth a listen.

Has the definition of sexism changed? From the "Hot contenders" list in the article linked, it seems that if the target of a derogatory comment made by a man is a woman, the comment is sexist. Have I misunderstood the definition of sexism?

Prepare for the boo-off: nominations are in for this year's Ernie Awards.
