Over Schooled But Under Educated – Why treat adolescence as a disease.

Schooling May Not Be Learning

  • For many children, the wonder of learning has been replaced by the tedium of trying to remember what they were taught about something which didn’t interest them. Learning is dependent on sitting still and listening carefully so that you can later recall what you are told for a test. We teach aboutwith things. Real learning sometimes largely takes place before and after school. When asked what he learning in school, a kindergarten student is likely to answer “we learned how to be quiet and sit still.” Abbott uses stories from his past to illustrate how learning and schooling are not synonymous.
