What should a 4-year-old know?

September 9, 2007

We spend a lot of time discussing what’s wrong with the state’s control of education and all too little time discussing what education might look like if the state had never commandeered it to begin with.

I’m going to try to spend more time on the meaning of education from here on out, because without understanding what it means, how can we possibly create the means?

So, let’s begin with this excellent and thought-provoking article by Alicia Bayer: What should a 4-year-old know? Read it, think about it, discuss it with someone, tell us what you think about it.
