By taking away the intrinsic joy of learning, traditional education teaches that happiness and fulfillment are to be found in external things -- an idea at the root of many of our culture's ills. This causes an 'incry' of silent emptiness and deep, private desperation.
In Breakthrough to Brilliance, Brenda Hamilton offers a brand-new vision that confronts this problem with truth and common sense. What it offers is as different from traditional education as a rocket ship is from a blimp. It is truly possible to change the world by changing the way we learn.
For all ages, this high touch/high tech, safe, beautiful, and orderly "prepared environment" facilitates discovery, initiative, curiosity, collaboration, understanding and true mastery in an atmosphere of freedom and respect.
This learning center is not just for the elite. It is for every true learner who is willing to "earn as they learn," engaging in satisfying, productive work in keeping with their passionate interests.
This book is not about fixing schools. It is about an exciting new invention, a game changer, that will affect our lifestyles, our economy, and our intellectual output. The book is about a glorious "mall for the mind," with complete plans for franchise around the globe. It is to be self-sustaining, with an initial prototype model made possible by a coalition of philanthropy and free enterprise.
The book is rich with personal stories, humor, the wisdom of great quotes, sound research, and tell-it-like-it-is boldness.
The reading of it will change not only your perceptions but also perhaps even your life.
