Driving back from a school leaders conference yesterday, I had a wonderful conversation with Gwen Lowenheim, a partner in transformational work using play and improv in schools. Gwen mentioned something she heard recently, from someone who had done a lot of work in both prisons and schools. This person said, ironically, people in prison may be more free because they know they have no freedom. In school, there is the illusion of it.
The best part may be the expressions of the students in the audience.
