I found this video of a 13 year old named Logan LaPlante which outlines his approach to his own education. He bases his approach to schooling on his pursuit of happiness, which, as he outlines, needs to fill eight buckets*:

  1. Recreation
  2. Time in Nature
  3. Religion/Spiritual
  4. Diet & Nutrition
  5. Exercise
  6. Stress Management & Relaxation
  7. Service & Contribution
  8. Relationships
The best part of this talk is that without knowing it, Logan has made the case simultaneously for The Big Shift and the way Canterbury provides a whole child education. Check it out:
