The Places We Go To Hide

We should be grateful to Gary Stager for reminding us of the wisdom of Seymour Papert.

At best, schools teach one-billionth of one percent of what knowledge exists in the universe, yet we quibble endlessly over what one-billionth of one percent is important. 

In this delusion, schools relentlessly consume the precious time of teachers and let students down.

School is not about preparing for more school.

When will we ever learn?
