82 – Passion Driven Education, with Connor Boyack

Connor Boyack is a busy man.  He speaks, he writes, he leads a think tank, and he’s an advocate for home education and self-directed learning.

His ninth book, Passion Driven Education, walks through the foundations of genuine learning. One of the core insights is that any learning environment you wouldn’t enjoy or find genuine interest in is not one you should impose on your kids.

Education should be based on letting children discover new passions through creativity and a resource and opportunity rich environment – same things that are chronically absent from mainstream education which deals with aggregates and not with individuals.
