Death of the classroom?

Well, almost. Not if parents build schools like the above. As Dan Roddy describes what could perhaps be a model school for 21st century learners:
The very fabric of the building itself is part of the children's education: there are no classrooms, only an open plan interior that extends around the playground; the playground spreads onto the roof, with a slide into the yard and rope ladders from the class areas through skylights set into it; a tap in the yard spills water out across the wooden floor so the children can watch and observe how it runs away.
More about the Fuji Kindergarten here and here.

We can dream, can't we? Happy Christmas World!
