No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.

My Education

The whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don’t know how to be submissive, and so on – because they’re dysfunctional to the institutions.
— Noam Chomsky

My take on formal education…

I've never made big money with what I learned in school. In our information based society it is more useful to learn how to find facts rather than memorize them, how to make sales, build wealth, and how to react creatively to change. In my experience, schooling does little more than obliging people to accept the grading system as a measure of their inner excellence.

We are no longer living in the Industrial Era and need not continue churning out obedient workers and consumers

 
Schools are designed on the assumption that there is a secret to everything in life; that the quality of life depends upon knowing that secret; that secrets can only be known in orderly successions; and that only teachers can properly reveal these secrets. An individual with a schooled mind conceives of the world as a pyramid of classified packages accessible only to those who carry the proper tags.
— Ivan Illich
