Why a 13 year-old kid from Tahoe is my hero

Given that I work in a more-or-less traditional, achievement-driven school, it may seem surprising how excited I am about the concept of Hackschooling.  Think homeschooling on Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Power Berries and a double espresso.

Hackschooling doesn't have to only exist outside traditional schools.  "Brick-and-mortar" institutions can learn a lot from this concept of re-tooling what we mean by the word "education."

If you do nothing else awesome today, take fifteen minutes, read Goli Mohammadi's brief article and WATCH THE VIDEO.  

Logan LaPlant, you rock, son!
