I am not saying that this is the way for everyone. We are all different, or should be.
What I am saying is that a ‘good education’ (programming) is not essential or the be-all and end-all of everything.
You can educate - truly educate -
yourself on your terms and not the system’s. I was well into my 30s
before I really got started in educating myself and I was entering
my 40s before this went into overdrive. It is never too late to
start and with the Internet the information is there for everyone
across a vast tapestry of subjects.
I mean, how many people have ever used
algebra since they left the education sausage machine? X + Y =
bollocksπ (pi constant), it always seemed to me.
I see authorities, politicians and parents discussing school budgets, teacher ratios, class sizes and all this stuff, but hardly, if ever, what children and students are actually taught.
That is just left to the system to
decide and dictate.
Here we are an expression of All
Possibility and yet the mind-numbing process of Little School, Big
School, pass exams and go to university is the only
possibility for so many.
