Thank heavens, we didn't have to fix the system to help ourselves have better lives! All we had to do was
focus on the right things and then do them.
This site is not designed
to be popular, slick or commercial. It was only designed to share some information with as little conflict of interest
as possible. My focus is to find solutions that benefit those of us involved in doing the work. Reality is that
every person is different and follows his or her own individual educational journey. This site can not replace schools
or teachers. Schools are just one part of the solution. Most schools and teachers do a wonderful job with what they
have available. This 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 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
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.
