Logan LaPlante told us all about how happy he was that he was removed from the traditional school system because he felt that it was bringing him down, or at least preventing him from growing. He spoke very highly of three main ideas; happiness, health, and creativity. Those three ideas he wasn't getting at his traditional school. I see his point, he isn't a traditional student so traditional school would not work out in his favor. And I like the three main ideas his school allows him to pursue; happiness, health,and creativity. Those ideas can be found in a traditional school too, and I truly think they are there, but they are curbed because in a traditional school kids (and teachers) are held responsible for structural restrictions such as tests and standards. so it's great that Logan was able to go to a school that allows him to learn about what he wants, how he wants, but I think traditional schools cannot offer health, happiness, and creativity to the same level because they have barriers in place that his nontraditional school does not. I think traditional schools (some at least) do their best to keep their students "stoked" as Logan called it, while also adhering to the standards and test expectations.
