Stehekin is located in the heart of the
North Cascades Mts. of Washington.
StehekinStehekin
Stehekin is an isolated
community of
approximately eighty
year-round residents. It
is located at the head of
the 55 mile long Lake
Chelan. You can only
travel to Stehekin by
foot (not recommended
in the winter), boat or
plane. There are no
roads to Stehekin.

Setting the Stage:
“Will Rogers once said that it was not ignorance that
was so bad, but as he put it, ‘all the things we know that
ain’t so.’ Nowhere is this more true than in American
education today, where fashions prevail and evidence is
seldom asked for or given. And nowhere does this do
more harm than in the education of children.”
Thomas Sowell - Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution
Two Examples of Questions educators should ask:
Why has Attention Deficit Disorder been diagnosed in children with such
alarming frequency during the past decade?
Do contemporary technological tools actually expand or limit the exercise
and development of bodily organs, including the brain, in the lives of growing
children?
… recognize children as physical, artistic and
intellectual beings.
… recognize the brain as a living, growing
organism that gradually develops through
distinct maturational stages.
… answer the question, “How do we encourage
the growth and development of the brain
within the context of a developmentally
appropriate educational curriculum?”
Those who educate children should understand
- the intellect is enriched by teaching to the
hands and feet.
Educators should:

Each developmental stage of growth has its own physiological and emotional prerequisites. Each stage of development needs its own, distinctly unique exercise.
