John Hunter, Teacher & Author, “World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements”

If you’ve ever watched kids programming on, say, Disney Channel or Nick – or seen a kids movie – they all seem to have the same general world view: Adults know nothing, and everything would be a lot better if kids ruled the world. For some 35 years, one educator has put that theory into action. Starting with an in-class game he calls “World Peace,” John Hunter has spent decades letting school children – from high school down to 4th grade – address and solve various issues. The result has been an incredibly hopeful and inspirational series of lessons so simple a child can understand them, that if applied by adults, just might be able to change the world. John Hunter, teacher, author of “World Peace and other 4th Grade Achievements” has brought his ideas to the Pentagon and the United Nations and elsewhere. (Originally broadcast 4-21-13 on The John Batchelor Show)
