Fifth Graders in 2017

Putting my cards on the table, I turn 60 this year. Sixty.  LX !

So who am I to talk about the way fifth graders are developing and should be developed these days to prepare them for the years from now right through 2100 AD.  Weird.

Should they be homeschooled? I just read an interesting article on the state of homeschooling today. I know that these kids are wired differently, they all have total web access, social media galore, stream films and TV programs in a way unimagined just a decade or so ago, and have a a stronger sense of health and sophistication than any group that I’ve ever seen. Confused? You bet. Education is tricky to figure out.


BTW, I borrowed this joker from the website, post on clown jokers!
