Words from TURN
We said that it would be great to make TURN a school where you could learn what you want to know about, study what you want to study, and explore a world where there aren’t any right or wrong answers. There were lots of different ideas for the curriculum: things like social studies classes that focus on failure, art classes with disabled instructors, and classes for learning the techniques that go into providing support for creative projects—an area that people may have been involved in but never actually learned the specifics of. Another part of the school concept was guidance counseling; people wanted a system that would give them the opportunity to scout out a wide range of different options.
