Here, in my mind, with these thoughts that rain so slow drain in with the city flooding.
"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn."
"I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker."
"Youths are passed through schools that don’t teach, then forced to search for jobs that don’t exist and finally left stranded in the street to stare at the glamorous lives advertised around them."
