know, gained his knowledge through personal research and not a formal institution.
thats what we are all here for isn't it? well its what iam here for... to learn from others experences, knowleagde and opinons.
i think i do agree with him because when one was at school, there was no scope to learn outside the subject. it was once put well by a frenid of
"education is just memroising facts for tests"
i agree with this, and when speaking to a techer one day found to my surpise that they are abosulty snowed under with paperwork (britain). why?
education is ment to help one to learn and be passonate about ones subject; insead, one comes across a mathmatical situation with a freind, and ones
frenid will say with pride 'i was never much good at maths!' shouldn't the person be devoloping their own learning with enthusiam?
i belive that education, like communism, works in theroy, but makes us all clones of each other.
