“What people do, quite naturally, is if it’s work, they try to figure out how to do less. And if it’s art, we try to figure out how to do more.” – Seth Godin
Seth Godin is one of my favorite authors. I haven’t read all his books, but I do recommend Linchpin. Although Linchpin isn’t free, he offers many of his books free (the inspiration for offering TPR and Education After the Collapse for free).
I recently ran across one of his Squidoo pages entitled “Stop Stealing Dreams.” The page is dedicated to offer his free resource ebook, “Stop Stealing Dreams – What is School For.”
From his page…
The economy has changed, probably forever.
School was invented to create a constant stream of compliant factory workers to the growing businesses of the 1900s. It continues to do an excellent job at achieving this goal, but it’s not a goal we need to achieve any longer.
In this 30,000 word manifesto, I imagine a different set of goals and start (I hope) a discussion about how we can reach them. One thing is certain: if we keep doing what we’ve been doing, we’re going to keep getting what we’ve been getting.
Our kids are too important to sacrifice to the status quo.
