  •  Why is it education is limited only to the young?- (3+ / 0-)

    If education was truly important to our society, we would offer it all the time to anyone who wanted it. If you did not force people to go to school, we could probably even financially achieve this.

    You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. If a teenager doesn't want to sit in school and learn Algebra, fine. Let them go out a dig ditches for a while. When they are ready and attentive it will take a lot less time to teach them.

    With remote education and peer to peer teaching we could have a much more useful education system for the same cost as this one.

    De air is de air. What can be done?
