Just wondering (2).

What I am beginning to write may just about rock the foundations of education as we know it. Learner-centered education requires taking a second look at the context of learning, in particular, how to learn, how to process information, how to inquire. That is the how. But what about considerations of time and space. Are we prepared to envision schools as physical repositories of knowledge alone? Can we envisage schools as mere tourist spots that get their upkeep supported by sales of entrance tickets, memorabilia, pins, pennants, etc? Think about it.
