Everything I used from school, I learned in recess
I am going to write a book one day titled : “Everything I used from school, I learned at recess.” Everything I used from school, I learned from working with people at recess. How many people were educated in the US? How many people who were educated in the United States studied all the wars in US history? What was the last time you used any of that knowledge? How many people in today's world have really been stuck when you can't spell a word? How many people don't know how to get a word spelled when you can't spell a word? You can call somebody, you got a cell phone don't you? Flag down a car. So your history isn't serving you, your spelling isn't serving you. Do you know how many hours we studied that stuff?
What if you had classes, how to enter a room and feel like it was home no matter what the room was. And every day was a field trip. You would go around and knock on doors, hi we're the fourth grade class up the street and we would like to come into your living room and make ourselves at home.
Wouldn't that be appropriate? Of course it would. Come on it. It would be a lesson for the homeowner as well as the children.
