Human beings are complex organisms and as such no one-size-fits-all educational approach will ever be truly effective for the majority of students. Many educational theorists have identified this cookie-cutter approach as the “factory model” of education. Business and manufacturing have developed more effective and flexible methods, but our schools have remained essentially static for over one hundred years. This factory model is the universal standard for what is considered traditional education in America, and is carried out with little regard for the ways humans, or individuals, learn. But we can change all this, with our kids and in our classrooms. Let's do it!

His teaching skills and methodology are geared to challenge his students to think beyond the rote level of learning, thereby preparing them for life beyond school. He understands that teaching is not just covering the material, or dispensing information, but connecting with students and thereby impacting their lives." -Gregory L. Pfister, retired school superintendent "Scott Husted lives his authentic learning philosophy through persistent and critical analysis of his teaching methodologies. His curriculum envisions all students as learners with unique and multiple talents. Scott does not believe in limiting students; but rather, he prefers to expand their learning horizons. His breadth and depth of teaching experience has given Scott a rich understanding of the value of connected,... More > significant curriculum enactment." -Mary Ann Nickel, Professor of Education, California State University Sonoma "Scott's strongest asset is that he cares deeply about those he serves, and enters in fully and personally with them, yet maintains objectivity. He is truly a person who is not afraid to be involved with those he teaches, and brings many creative resources into those environments." -Gerry Presley, retired school superintendent< Less
