Thank heavens, we didn't have to fix the system to help ourselves have better lives!
This site did not need to be popular, slick or commercial to be effective. It was only designed to provide
some information with as little conflict of interest as possible. Reality is that every person is different and follows
his or her own individual education path. This site can not replace schools or teachers. Most schools and teachers
do a wonderful job with what they have available. The site is simply an information resource designed
to help some families navigate today's world a little easier. The site
is self funded in order to maintain its credibility and independence.
With that in mind, please or be aware that although this
site doesn't do any secret stalking, other entities may not have the same values and may be tracking you.
It is probably a good idea to know what they are doing with the information - so that you can protect yourself.
The new education model is awesome! However, it requires a different
set of skills than traditional education models and different preparation. Families who build the right skills can make
themselves much more successful much sooner on their own than they can waiting for the government, a large
corporation or some other bureaucratic entity to fix the system for them.
Thank you ahead of time for having kept this site independent and yourself free to chose
your own future by buying one of the books on the site. It is much appreciated and I wish you a lot of success.
Just to reiterate, this website is not designed to replace schools or teachers. Most schools and teachers do the
best job they can with what they have available. They just can't be all things to all people. In addition, many
schools have mandated priorities that don't necessarily match all students. Teachers are expected to fix problems
created by other people and some of those problems can't actually be fixed. Public schools are part of the
social welfare infrastructure. Their quality is dependent on the caring, commitment and intellect of the whole community
- the taxpayers, their public leaders and all the participating families. It is up to the participants to maximize
their outcomes. This website has practical information to help parents and students succeed when the system
isn't ideal for them. However, everyone is different. Parents and students must decide which strategies
will work best for them.
Note: Because the majority of my work is off the 'net and requires most of my focus, this site has been made
available to help people succeed no matter their income level or formal education. Thank you for understanding that
staying good at what I do is a very high priority. It takes the almost all of my time and energy.
