UnCollege Manifesto

Dale J. Stephens, Website, Aug 10, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Lisa Nielsen links to this manifesto by Dale Stephens. I took a quick look through the very light 25-page PDF and while it's better than the Edupunks' Guide, it's only marginally better, and it's still not what self-educators need to read. But at least it makes the point that learning for yourself is hard. "If you want to take the easy path to mediocrity," writes Stephens, "I encourage you to go to college and join the masses." But I'll take this for what it is - a manifesto, as opposed to a guide - and put the blog into my newsreader, and we'll see where it leads (but what's up with publishers giving out book deals for this stuff?).
