Pathetic public investment in grade schools plus steadily increasing costs of higher education combine to make America one of the poorer performing Western countries when it comes to education. New models for education are springing up around the country, and while I’m not saying that music festivals may be the answer to our country’s education woes, I am convinced that progressive festivals like Lightning in a Bottle, which has dedicated half of its offerings to conscious, community oriented education, hold some of the answers to making learning fun...

When I arrived in late October, 2012 (days before Amendment 64 passed allowing recreational use...
