The Essential School Sucks, #11 of 50
Theme Two: Leaving Institutional Schooling and Finding Educational Alternatives
Lenore Skenazy was one of the first people to sound the alarm on the dangers of safety. Now, two decades into the "century of the safe" - where safety is the trump card in almost every policy argument - we must recognize that letting go of overprotectiveness is an important step towards treating young people with more dignity.
2013: Lenore joins me to discuss the Free Range Kids movement, and strategies for reaching out to helicopter parents. We also explore the trends that have led to the panic, paranoia and over-protective nature of so many parents today.
