Hi Bucky, I am a teacher who is continually trying to improve our education systems (I live in AU, but they are much the same as in the US), and am constantly frustrated with those within the system being stuck in the ‘old-school’ mind sets. I read on a post that you dropped out of school (most likely because the school didn’t allow you to explore your curiosity). Is this true? What were the main reasons why you made this decision, and is it true that one of your main motivations for your Youtube channel was to make education free to the world? It is a great story – ‘The boy who drops out of school because the system is flawed, and ends up teaching the world. You have certainly taught me a lot via those videos, and my students, and now my son who has just started Electronic Engineering – That is a span of two generations. Awesome stuff!
