Thank you, Washington Post! Parents and even us grandparents around the world have yearned for something like this forum since the day our kids started kindergarten. I am surprised no other news organization came up with the idea before! You can bet I, and all of my friends, will be checking this page out on a regular basis. Again, many thanks for filling a real need.

Seems to me like you are advocating Montessori education. Everything I've learned about Montessori is right in line with what you're saying. My son is starting his 4th year at a Montessori school and loves the freedom to explore and learn it provides. Love the quote from Einstein.
