This Is What Happens When A Kid Leaves Traditional Education

This Is What Happens When A Kid Leaves Traditional Education
Logan Laplante is a 13 year-old boy who was taken out of the education system to be home schooled instead. Not only was he home schooled, but Logan had the ability to tailor his education to his interests and also his style of learning, something traditional education does not offer. As Logan has mentioned, when he grows up he wants to be happy and healthy. At a TEDx talk in 2013, he discussed how hacking his education is helping him achieve that goal. Logan’s story can be seen in a similar light as Jacob Barnett‘s story who was first put in Special Ed by his school until he was pulled out of standard education and is now seen as an incredibly intelligent young person who is on track to winning a Nobel Prize one day. I also recently did a TEDx talk in 2014 about my story of leaving college for good. More on Education & Homeschooling Currently about 3.8% of children ages 5 – 17 are home schooled in the US.

Economia della felicità Con economia della felicità si intendono tutti quegli studi che tentano di comprendere quali siano le cause economiche del benessere delle persone: lavoro, reddito, modello di consumo. Studi che si stanno rivelando, oltre che originali nelle loro conclusioni, anche potenzialmente utili per la definizione della politica economica delle nazioni. Con politica economica si intendono gli interventi dello Stato volti ad indirizzare l’economia di un paese verso obbiettivi prefissati. In assenza di dati empirici che permettano di definire le preferenze dei cittadini, l’unico modo per definire queste preferenze risiede nella visione antropologica delle forze politiche al potere.
