Cool Schools…

Wow, how come there were no schools like this when I was a kid. I think I would have like school a lot better had my school been a tree school. How cool would that have been?

What could be better than a tree school? A forest school of course. What a wonderful idea this is. I think this is how we should make all schools. I bet when these kids get home at night they’re not all wired up and crazy. Maybe if we connected at an early age with the natural world around us we would become more self-sufficient and connected with ourselves when we became adults. Maybe then we could understand that by destroying our natural world we are destroy ourselves.

“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us.  When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”  ~Aldo Leopold

Here’s some video’s and more information I found on these amazing schools. I’m so glad to see some countries moving their people into the 21st century.
