What I've Learned in my "Education"
For me, like a lot of bright people born wired a little differently, traditional education presented a challenge that impacted my entire life; missed opportunities, disappointment, under-achievement which cast the die for a hard life. Still today, my school challenges lie at the base of a self-loathing that, left unchecked, leads me to self-destructive behavior. I see this pattern repeated among a younger generation and it makes me wonder why there isn't a solution. Can my experience and the experiences of people like me, provide a hack of the system to allow us to succeed?
