Come to Oars

What if the dominant discourse on education is just wrong? What if the problem isn't that young people are lazy or irresponsible or addicted to their devices, or that schools aren't holding up their end? What if the problem is that youth are systematically being stripped of adventure or self-determination or of meaningful experience in general? These are the questions at the heart of Come to Oars, Station Maine's book about Experiential Education on the Coast of Maine.
