A school built and led by kids
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I stand before you today to share a dream that I have for my two daughters. A dream that I believe will help shape their future in ways that are both profound and meaningful.
I want my daughters to have the freedom to explore their own interests, to make their own decisions, and to take charge of their own education. That's why I have decided to purchase a 10-acre property in Virginia, where they will be able to build and lead their own school.
In this new environment, my daughters will have the opportunity to learn from real-world experiences and take ownership of their own education. They will have access to cutting-edge technology, including 3D printing, solar energy, and the latest advancements in AI and machine learning. They will have the resources to grow their own food, design their own living and work spaces, and start software and traditional companies. They will be able to experiment, make mistakes, and learn from them in a safe and supportive environment.
This will be a true hands-on educational experience, where my daughters will be able to learn by doing, and where they will have the freedom to make their own choices about what they want to study, how they want to study it, and how they want to apply what they have learned. They will be able to form their own opinions, develop their own skills, and learn how to work with others to achieve a common goal.
In short, I believe that by giving my daughters this opportunity, I will be better preparing them for the future. I believe that this experience will help them become more confident, self-reliant, and independent young women who are equipped to tackle the challenges of the 21st century.
We live in a brave new world. The internet has made knowledge free. Automation has replaced rote memorization. Children who are not given the opportunity to exercise their unique strengths and interests to create real value for the real world are at risk of preparing for a future that does not exist.
So today, I invite you to join me in this vision. Let us work together to create a future where all children have the opportunity to take charge of their own education and to build the lives they want for themselves.
