Can You Get an Education in Spite of School?

Lori Bourne, Montessori for Everyone, Apr 06, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Summary of a talk by John Taylor Gatto, including this bit: "Mr. Gatto ended his presentation by talking about traits that a truly educated person possesses; they bear little resemblance to traditional school curriculums:
* An educated person writes his/her own script in life; destiny is self-determined
* An educated person is never at a loss for what to do with his/her time
* An educated person has a blueprint for personal values, a philosophy
* An educated person understands his/her own mortality and learns throughout life, right until the end
* An educated person has the capacity to create new things, new experiences, and new ideas"
