This is very exciting news about education: A combined high school/college operating under the auspices of the New York City school board. It isn't news that high school (age 14-18) education in the US is quite destructive of creativity and motivation. However, griping about that is not as useful as doing something. Simon's Rock is one experiment in changing the way teenagers are educated; this is another, and much as I (as an alum of Simon's Rock) hate to say it, I expect it will do better, because the experience actually starts younger for most people, and is designed to be an integrated experience that trains people to think and be able to communicate those thoughts.

Imagine that.
