An Open Letter to Educators

Dan Brown is a former college student who, disgusted with the waste of time of the "cattle call" lecture classes he was sitting through, dropped out of school and pursued his own education online. His message is timely and very necessary. I agree with most of what he has to say, except for two things: 1. Higher Education is not the "end all be all" of informational power, even in the traditional institutional education system. 2. Public Education IS reinventing itself to match the rest of the world - painfully slowly. The question really becomes: will public education change in time? As more and more informational offerings become available through internet sources and civic groups that specialize in one particular kind of information (magnet schools, sport centers, etc.), public education is going to be stripped down to core the core curricula of math and language arts only, without the enriching subjects like the arts and physical sciences. Students will spend part of their week in core classes online and spend the rest delving into focus areas they are passionate about. Share this video with a teacher you know.
