Hackschooling makes me happy: Logan LaPlante at TEDx

“It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of education have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wrack and ruin without fail. It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.” -Albert Einstein

What do you want to be when you grow up? A doctor, a lawyer, a brain surgeon, a zoo keeper? All of those are fine and dandy, but they are also pointless without happiness.
