Dean Bragonier on “The True Gifts of a Dyslexic Mind”

In this video, Dean Bragonier explains that dyslexics have a tremendous capacity for learning and creativity: “We’ve all heard how Einstein is dyslexic, right? JFK, Pablo Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, Richard Branson, Charles Schwab. I mean, the the laundry list is endless, right? In fact, dyslexics when they are fully empowered and they recognize that innate intelligence, represent 35 percent of all entrepreneurs; they represent 40 percent of all self-made millionaires. And you know those ‘rocket scientists’ down at NASA? One out of two of them is dyslexic. My favorite, because I live in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is this uh, you know, easy-to-get-into school called MIT. They call dyslexia ‘the MIT disease.'”

Sir Ken Robinson Endorses Homeschooling and Unschooling

In this short video, Sir Ken Robinson explains why he believes homeschooling and unschooling are excellent educational options: “The advantages and the attractions are, of course, that parents and their children can devise their own curricula. They can have a completely flexible approach to timing. They can have their own approaches to assessment. They can move at their own pace according to the interests and learning styles of each individual child. And they can mold and shape the curriculum around the emerging interests of the children going through the homeschooling program.”
