This post is a comment to Chris Brogan’s post on education that quickly got out of hand. More was written and deleted than is shared below, but my education also taught me about discretion. Let’s leave it at that and I hope you enjoy the opinion.
I went to school in an age where teachers had rules and a fierce expectation that you learn your multiplication tables without using your fingers, that you learn how to read and write by reading and writing a lot. Turns out, the more you read and write, the better you get at it. The more you know, the more you want to know.
