'Hackschooling makes me happy'
In 2013, at 13 years old, Logan LePlante spoke at TED about the idea of 'hackschooling' as an alternative education to attending mainstream schooling. Logan spoke about the importance of happiness in the lives of young children, and the importance of recognising that children and young people have lives that can be happy, full and worthwhile, long before they are old enough to have houses and careers. Logan asserts that the importance of emphasising happiness in childhood is often lost, in the expectations that we place on children, to work hard during their childhood to pursue something worthwhile in adulthood. Logan states the case that creativity and a flexible education is the key in helping young people to develop a new mindset to suit the possibilities for at home education that are now available to them.
