Is school destroying children?

Hi there! I’m Juwayria Asvat, I’ve been an unschooler and a self directed learner for over ten years now. I recently did a Ted talk and I’d love to share it with teens who it might resonate with.

Thanks Juwayria

    Hey Juwayria – this was really incredible. The remark about gap years was really telling… especially as we see this as a rising trend and something that’s really a positive things for young people, looking at “why do they need it” was excellent. And I was heartbroken to hear that statistic about suicide attempts in South Africa. Thanks for continuing to speak your voice and spread your message. So great. And also, great tactic of introducing yourself at the end, I think that was a powerful break from the normal approach to these talks.

    Wow. Juwayria, you not only had me seriously choked up by the end of your talk, but you have demonstrated a grasp of the issues and made a case more effectively that any ‘adult’ I have yet encountered. I wanted to express my gratitude for the effort you made to create this statement. I will share it widely and thankfully to support children around the world.
