Why are studio-based classes only reserved for art and design schools? Studio classes encourage creativity and collaboration. Let's start early and practice often!

Jeff, you bring up some good points. What are everyone's thoughts on allowing the success of studio classes speak for themselves? We would really only need one teacher to start this movement, perhaps begin a blog or an idea exchange with other teachers, get it backed by some kind of big player in education and let the idea spread like wildfire. This, of course, is contingent on the success of that primary and probably secondary studio classes, but I'm confident that it would work out! Thoughts? Crits?

Love the HFLI approach, Hao!

It reminded me of an experimental charter school in San Diego called High Tech High that is almost exclusively project based, which can be used as a scaffolding, though they are more science oriented. Check them out here: http://www.hightechhigh.org/

What about design mentors? We could possibly set it up like the pro bono system with lawyers, and have local designers, artists, etc. "adopt" a teacher and classroom and provide mentorship to both teacher and students at regular intervals. Additionally, they will be "on call" whenever design guidance and help are needed by any party.
