Knowledge, Learning, Community
Derek Morrison refers to and transcribes segments of a recent BBC report on the business of education. "The edition includes some pretty insightful perspectives about the advance of the private sector into all levels of education," he writes, "(it) also offers some thought provoking contributions particularly from people like Martin Bean, the UK OU VC." I think the main lesson here is that educators cannot remain complacent - there is an entire business community out there wanting to prove it can do a better job, and motivated by the business opportunities, now and in the future, the education industry affords.
