Askthequestion

Seth Godin asks the question: What is school for? I think the more interesting question is: What does it mean to be an "educated person" in the 21st Century? We should talk about outcomes not process.

Anonymous Bosch

Bullshit. The "problem" with education is too many parents who think it's a service they purchase, rather than a core duty of being a parent.

You want inspired, creative kids? Spend more time with them. Introduce them to cool things. Do cool things with them.

Stop blaming teachers for your own failings.

Mr. Seth Godin, very well asked about schooling that what is school about? I have seen that now schooling is for not education but it's becoming business & student just pass out for the degree. Can anyone see the future with great & obedient school for just education. In the past it supposed to student is being made for the fight with life with all the activities but now they are supposed to make a currier by their parent not for their choice, WhY?????

Can anyone change the system? Can I have school name which is totally pressed free where students can study with pure 100% interest not by force but presser free.
I really like your start & learn the great subject that is "OBEDIENT"

Really thankful to you Mr. Seth Godin,
Looking for great more topic soon.

MicroSourcing

The thing with students is that they learn in different ways. While it's true that some kids learn faster through action, some do well with sitting down and listening to lectures. It's a matter of diversifying the way schools educate children.

As I say at PapayaWorks (http://www.papayaworks.com/video), if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth a million.

Language Translation

Recalling my school I can just say we need overhauling in our education system. Most of the schools that are in far furlong areas they only teach what a book has in it. While the question of child and the curiosity to know the world around him/her is rejected. And just asked to focus on the marks. This is why I opposed and left the school. But I am sure such schools are still persist to prevent child's growth.

Alex Morris

You only have to look at a school lunch to see one of the real problems with education. How can kids be expected to pay attention to anything when they have huge amounts of sugar surging through their blood streams? All those sweets, can of fizzy coke, McDonalds, chips etc. Talk about an afternoon slump. Get them eating healthy food and they'll be able to concentrate more, then start to look at other areas of education.

“If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth a million.” Maybe today, Jim, when we call pressing keys writing. If you get the word-shape correct, not only you form an image for language, but you give it appropriate expression as well. Here is a good article I recently read: “Philip Hensher: Why handwriting matters” http://guardian.co.uk/books/2012/oct/07/missing-ink-handwriting-art-hensher-extract
