I just saw two links juxtaposed in my Facebook feed (because sharing links is the new critical thinking on the Internet).
The first is a girl who has had the privilege to travel all over the world with her parents and siblings, in what she calls world-schooling (and some commenters have called unschooling). The second is a popular NYT article about Dasani, a homeless child in New York City.
Think about “freedom”, education, and how it relates to race/class when you read these things and it’ll gross you out how far apart these two girls are.
I don’t mean to speak disparagingly of Hannah, the world-schooling girl, but I feel from reading her posts that she doesn’t necessarily grasp the complexity of how truly lucky she is.
