Making Minds Less Well Educated Than Our Own, Roger C Schank
Via Scoop.it – More … or less!
“When we focus on intellectual and scholarly issues in high school as opposed to more human issues like communications, or basic psychology, or child raising, we are continuing to rely upon out dated notions of the educated mind that come from elitist notions of who is to be educated. In that ubiquitous view, education for the masses is the same as education for the intellectual elite and education for the intellectual elite is anything but practical. So while the goal seems to be to educate everyone equally, the reality is that those who survive the current system are educated in a particular way that is less and less relevant to operating in today’s world.”
