valuing mistakes

It is not crazy.

One of the greatest things about homeschooling my daughter was realizing that she could fail at something or try something and realize it was not for her and not be penalized as kids in school would be.  A homeschooler tries an online class and it just isn't a go, parents tackle it another way.  Unschoolers don't even get into these categories at all.

And our schools are fundamentally misdesigned if kids cannot be wrong and make mistakes without penalty: it limits their learning.
