Some were as young as fifteen at the time, many were dropouts, and few of us worked much - but all of us learned a million times more than if we'd been at school.

Reminds me of one of my favorite Springsteen tunes: 'We learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school'.

As I talked about on another post, my grandfather dropped out of school in grade 8 to help support his mom and dad and sister when his father was injured at Westinghouse. Life, books, travel, and just loving to talk to people, taught him more than he probably would have learned in school too. There are so many life lessons missing from our education system.

I think things like Freeskool are a step in the right direction as far as education goes.
