THE LIVING WISDOM SCHOOLS, with their Education for Life philosophy, have avoided the trap that has led government officials and mainstream educators astray – namely the assumption that we can EITHER have brilliant, academically successful students, OR we can have happy, carefree kids who’ll never amount to much in their lives. The Living Wisdom Schools have shown that we can have both – that we can teach children to be spectacularly successful in both ways – in school and life. We’ve shown beyond any possibility of doubt that it’s possible to have happy, enthusiastic, bright, positive kids who love their academic subjects and excel at them. We’ve shown that it’s possible to create a school where it is not uncommon for the kids to actually beg us, at the end of the school year, to find a way to make the school year last year-round. (it baffles us, too!) This book reveals the methods that have made the Living Wisdom Schools so outstandingly successful. In the words of teachers, parents, students, and academics, it presents an earthy, practical approach for transforming education and nurturing happy children who excel in academics and life. Our students look forward to coming to school every day – read on and discover why.
