“Love of learning is an expression thrown around a lot in schools, but I really believe that’s what’s happening here. I am also a parent at IANY; my son is in kindergarten this year,” says Benson. “The other day his homeroom teacher told me that that while they were learning some math concepts, my son said, ‘Oh wow, my brain is hurting from this. But that’s good because I know I’m really learning something!’ As a parent, I couldn’t ask for much more than that in terms of my child’s education. I think many parents worry that their children may be discouraged by enormous amounts of homework, or may feel lost in a big classroom, or simply not connect with their fellow classmates, their teachers, or to the material being taught. We can all agree that these things can be poisonous to a child’s education and his/her happiness. I see firsthand that my son — and all of the children here — are happy to come to school, excited to learn, and feel totally comfortable with their teachers, and with our head of school who has an open door policy.”
