Over at ReformK12, Chett had a good time earlier this week laughing at the concept of a "child-centered" school. I would think, however, that any school that wasn’t child centered should be considered a fraud.
Of course, he was using the story of one particular totally off the wall school as an example to invalidate the whole "progressive" approach to education (which advocates giving kids more control over their own learning). I agree that this particular school is not one I would send my kids to. But considering how much of an advocate for parent choice ReformK12 is, I would think he would welcome all kinds of schools – even progressive ones – giving ALL parents a choice of the type of education that best fits the needs of their kids.
