"I dropped out of school because my schooling was interfering with my education."
Nobody is serving up the resources I need to do my job. I need to investigate, research, test, evaluate and reason with the information that I uncover in order to do my job. I am set a task and that is it. Bruce, we need to implement this. Make it happen. So I begin the process of researching, testing, learning, evaluating and so on in order to accomplish the task. How often does this happen in our classrooms?
Are our students the Titanic and ‘schooling’ and ‘education’ two passengers who have leapt from the ship in their life jackets, frantically blowing their whistles to attract attention but inevitably drifting apart as the boat sinks? Personally I’m not sure the situation is that bleak, but I tend to think that without a consciousness of the need for schooling to match the needs of education then the drifting will begin.
I would love to know what you think.
