Here is a great read on where education is heading.
Well it might not be a great read in the sense that it is positive but more like a good wake up call.
It is really sad and worrying to be honest.
Being someone who just finished the journey through the long education spectacle (20 years being taught) and having experienced various education systems I could notice how increasingly that education is moving towards a business model where the focus is not on the individual growth of the students but rather profit and mass production.
If I ever have children I will have to seriously consider where they go for their education.
Here is another very interesting post on a video which touches on the same subject!
