OF COURSE SHE DOES.
Along with being an artist/actress/fashion muse/ghost/praying mantis/C. S. Lewis character/hologram…Tilda Swinton is also a teacher. Of high school.
According to The Guardian, the actress cofounded a high school in 2013 with Ian Sutherland McCook, a fellow parent at the Moray Steiner School, where their children were both enrolled. Erryone at that school must graduate at 14, and head to a more conventional high school learning situation, but Tilda said NO, waved a wand, summoned Aslan and created Drumduan Upper School, a crazy-ass high school where there’s no tests and all beekeeping and Tilda-ing.
â€œThereâ€™s no grading, no testing at all,â€ Tilda had explained to me earlier. â€œMy children are now 17, and they will go through this school without any tests at any time, so itâ€™s incredibly art-based, practical learning. For example, they learn their science by building a Canadian canoe, or making a knife, or caramelising onions. And theyâ€™re all happy 17-year-olds. I canâ€™t believe it â€“ happy and inspired.â€
Would you send your kids to the school of Tilda exprimental exploratorium? I’ve got good mind to enroll, myself.
