It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today.

- Isaac Asimov
Do you want to want to be a part of the revolution? I do. My contribution is to train parents to be effective tutors to their own children and take back the power.

I read an article today by Sam Chaltain about an event being staged for school leaders, teachers, students, parents, and community members called the Great American Teach In on May 10, 2011. Learn more at Declaration of Education.

Imagine The Impact Of A Revolutionary Education
I am starting to write my own declaration today. I invite you to join in. Think about how you want your child to live in relationship to learning. Think about the kind of environment you would like for your child to learn in. Think about what could happen in your child’s life if he or she was given every opportunity to maximize their brain power, their emotional intelligence, and their motivation. How could they, and all their friends, impact this world if given a revolutionary education?
