Then there is this TED lecture that reasons through the systemic destruction of children's creativity.
We have to realize that schooling our children will not allow us to give them the lives we want them to lead.

I feel the need to find out how the Greeks calculated the circumference of the earth and build steam engines and all kinds of things so she can watch and do it too.
