I vowed in the 4th grade to create the Vaikido Hero Unschool. Please accept my apologies for being late.
I hadn't thought of Vaikido yet nor did I know how I would do it, but I have not stopped thinking about it, or quietly (and sometime noisily) scheming to do it since 1975. I still cringe when I see back to school sales, school busses or smell the inside of a school.
Because I have been studying personal and professional success in every domain, non-stop since college. And because I've been observing real life adult results. And because I can see that we're not preparing children to be successful adults.
And it stinks.
I just saw a sarcastic Facebook post on tax day - something like, "Thank God I learned about parallelograms instead of taxes."
Taxes are an adult reality and we could add about 50 more really important adult 'gotta do' things that school doesn't remotely prepare students for. But that doesn't stop individuals and families from falling apart physically, mentally, and emotionally.
The disconnect and the trauma fuel my quest. No week goes by that I don't shed at least one tear over the senseless suffering caused by institutionalized apathy, ignorance, and incompetence.
I will not stop fighting for you, your children or the future of our society.
