UG #520 - Education and Its Discontents (HowSchooling has Undermined Learning)

13-10-2010 01:04

This 10th anniversary episode of Unwelcome Guests, with Guest Presenter, Tereza Corragio, looks at the claim of US schools and colleges to serve the greater good of society.

We recall Lyn Gerry's original mission for the show, and contrast that with the US education system. We start with two episodes of Third Paradigm about college financing, and read from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
