To the editor
Great insight and a viable, practical educational model as proposed by Ed Lyell. This guy is right on the money. Finally someone who sees children as they are: unique and inquisitive when learning is presented in such a way as to stimulate their eager, young minds w/what they perceive as useful and important to them. The basics such as math, reading, science, etc. will fall into place when individually-designed plans are utilized.
