Default Re: Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling

Yeah, she's right but it's an old story ...

"Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each."
Plato

"The roots of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet."
Aristotle

"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education."

"Education is not received. It is achieved."

"It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education."
Albert Einstein


To Sir With Love

The Dead Poets' Society.

etc

I think the idea is to get a piece of paper to prove to employers that you have enough basic knowledge, work ethic, organisation and brain cells to do a job. It's in the workforce that we start our deeper education.
