    Stop Stealing Dreams

    Seth Godin has published a manifesto about what he thinks is wrong with education today. It's worth a read, especially if you're in the mindset that more school is the golden ticket to a better life.

    The economy has changed, probably forever.

    School hasn't.

    School was invented to create a constant stream of compliant factory workers to the growing businesses of the 1900s. It continues to do an excellent job at achieving this goal, but it's not a goal we need to achieve any longer.

    In this 30,000 word manifesto, I imagine a different set of goals and start (I hope) a discussion about how we can reach them. One thing is certain: if we keep doing what we've been doing, we're going to keep getting what we've been getting.

    Our kids are too important to sacrifice to the status quo.
