    Thank goodness this is happening somewhere.

    Ben, I believe this is how all kids should be educated, and I think it can be replicated; my school will only ever have ten students per teacher. The transformation of students in this school is astonishing, and I think all kids deserve this kind of environment with a mentor teacher.

    This is so sweet. Not in the warm, look at the kid doing something way, but in the man on man this makes so much sense way. Learning by doing is such a fundamentally more exciting and more impactful and more expansive process. How have you found the time commitment and resources needed by you, the other school staff, and the parents to support the pursuits of the students? do you feel like this is a unique venture specific to what you have created, or something that you think can travel either in part of in whole to other environments? Anyhow, congrats. I feel very inspired.

      I forgot to include "just" as the second word in the second sentence. I'm blown away by what your daughter is creating.
