Austin Kleon shared a link to John Holt's newsletter and some thoughts on learning at home. One of the issues I have had is that it is a contested space.

Although I still work within education, my current title of ‘subject matter expert‘ seems a long way from the classroom. This is something that I have been pondering for a while.
