Class topics and schedule

Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school. – Albert Einstein

Schedule:Proposed 4 class “windows” between 8:30AM and 1PM with additional optional “window” for teenagers. 1PM-5(6)PM –  governing meetings, field trips, sports and projects, and free play

Class introduction. We find it’s most important to allow children to be like or dislike a subject knowledgeably. There would be a series of introduction to new projects/topics presented both by students and volunteering staff.
