cloudhead - school (part II)
"“The challenges of a new century demand more time in the classroom.”“Our school calendar is based upon the agrarian economyand not too many of our kids are working the fields today.” —Obama

Hold on …Our school system is based on the industrial economy:schools as factories, classrooms as assembly lines,knowledge as an endlessly repeatable product.The calendar is the least of our worries.Our education is as fragmented, disconnected and hierarchical as the industrial age jobs it was designed to prepare us for. Our entire school system is out of tune with our electronic culture.More time in the classroom is hardly the fix."
