Pivoting the education matrix

Seth Godin Blog

My guess is that most parents and educators are afraid to even discuss the topic. For the longest time, school has been organized around subjects. Fifth graders go to math class and then English class and then geography. Mostly, those classes don’t teach what they say they teach. Sure, there are some facts, but mostly it’s the methods of instruction that are on offer. School usually has a different flavor than learning.

Education is the answer

Seth Godin Blog

Formal education is a foundation, but lifelong, informal education can transform our lives. And informal education scales. Educated people create other educated people. The standards go up when education is present, because the cost of being the least educated person in your tribe is high. Education, on the other hand, involves enrollment, and volunteers in search of answers can learn quickly.
