"If you think education is expensive, try ignorance."
“I quit college and enrolled as a student at the University of Planet Earth, the world’s oldest and largest educational institution. It has billions of professors, tens of millions of books, and unlimited course offerings. Tuition is free, and everybody designs his or her own major.” (William Upski Wimsatt, in Utne Reader, May/June, 1998)
“Our ‘Tell’em-and-test’em’ way of teaching leaves most students increasingly confused, aware that their academic success rests on shaky foundations, and convinced that school is mainly a place where you follow meaningless procedures to get meaningless answers to meaningless questions…” (John Holt, How Children Fail)
