There are utopian ideals on the extreme left…. the extreme right and…. everywhere in between it seems and our kids end up paying the price. I like the concept…. really really well actually and…. concepts like this are helping in a community not so far away from me but…. they’re not playing out in a classroom competing for time that increasingly more kids desperately need buttoning down basics as in…. readin', writin', and 'rithmetic. Check this out, Chicago Wilderness Newsletter. This SUMMER program is way cool in that it’s serving kids from lower socioeconomic families where parents don’t exactly have the greatest track record of supporting teachers or reinforcing what their kids learn throughout the school year or the means and drive to provide their kids with tutors and educational camps and exposure to the wilds over summer break.
