I can't wait for the film "class Dismissed" to be released!!  Here is a link to the trailer.

Don't get it confused with a documentary with the same title, about the history of the working class, that was released in 2006. (Although, it sounds like an interesting film as well)

I'm hoping it will help people think about education as something that happens naturally and not something that can only happen inside a school.  It would be wonderful if more people could embrace the truth that we don't need to fill kids heads up with facts because they have the answers at their finger tips.  What they need to learn is the confidence, creativity and skills to solve real problems.  I want children to learn to know the world and know themselves.  Then they can figure out what they have to offer - matching passion with need = a fulfilling life and would make the world a better place.

I'll let you know when the film is released.
