In the Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy


In this episode, we discuss a listener’s question regarding giving advice to his college-aged son.


Children are in a lot of danger because of this.

  • There’s a big difference between teaching how to think and what to think.
  • The danger starts in elementary school.


Kids need a lot of time with their parents.

  • You can teach them how to think.
  • It’s important to know what they think now and how they came to that conclusion.


Tune in to hear about a conversation Andy had with his son’s principal.

    Why do public schools reward perfect attendance? Money.

    State-funded public schools are compensated on the basis of student attendance. If the kid is in school that day, the school gets paid. If the kid is absent, the school does not get paid. It is that simple.

    So rewards for perfect attendance are, in truth, rewards for maximizing the school’s income.

    Thanks for these thoughts Andy. You’ve hit the nail on the head once again. I sure hope more education professionals and administrators become influenced by your writing and podcasts.
