I think the statements could have been made in a less culturally-specific way, but I can say I disagree with them. I'm neutralized the 'commandments' a bit and made them over into statements requiring neither a diety nor jurisprudence to accept:
- Good schools also require high levels of equality and civic participation in society.
- No school or college knows enough to “train” students for jobs.
- Use motivation, interest, and passion to persist past failure to gain lots and lots of practice.
- Humans learn through experiences in the world.
- Support learning with a well-integrated set of tools, technologies, interactions, and practices.
- Network with each other and with good tools and technologies in good environments.
- People need to know how to avoid being duped by the rich, the powerful, and the greedy.
- Producing and proactively participating are core self-protection skills.
- Gain a sense of agency through civic participation and as members of interest- and passion-driven affinity spaces.
- If the cost of failure is not too high, it allows people to take risks.
