I loved this brief look into the Acton academy. if only educators would realize that children are adults and need to be treated with the freedom that adults enjoy otherwise they will grow up feeling that it's okay to compel others to do the things they think are best for them. This is a critical public problem as well because anyone who grows up in the public education system has the mindset that that's how everyone should be educated. It's a hurdle that needs to be overcome mentally for adults to see their children is capable of doing something greater with their freedom given to them.
I appreciate Laura and her husband Jeff for starting Acton Academy. My daughter is going to an affiliate now in North Austin, and I can say that it works.
I’ve watched my sweet girl go from crying everyday at a “normal” school due to mean girls and being told to sit down and shut up for 7 hours, to a thoughtful, proactive learner who can explain and defend her projects to a room of 30+ adults.
It’s been amazing. This was a great inside look to the whole process of how Acton was born. I’m so grateful it was.
