Mike Reid of Social Bulldozer took time recently to have a chat with FSN. He said that children are learning machines. Kids learn everything, and not just what we want to teach them. They look for knowledge in any place that they can find it. However, now the United Nations wants to mandate authority-based education: the system that has worked so well in the US. This means that children in developing countries will be forced to learn in centralized factory-type facilities. They will be prevented from working, thereby limiting their workplace knowledge. When the state monopolizes their education, it sabotages the creative process that children thrive on. Mike believes that the key to truly higher education lies in privatizing schools, allowing children to learn in the workplace, and recognizing that different kids learn differently.
