Why Education is Killing Learning. None of this is new. Creativity is being further marginalised from all levels of institutional education as the control of economic rationalism deepens. The cycle of education decay is descending, the pain inflicted on natural born learners is increasing and yet the internal hampsters, those invested in their own systems, because "they're all right Jack" do little , overtly and consciously, to change or question their own servitude. Why the fuck would you? Sad. Really Sad, but the pain of cyclic death (we all have to endure ego death, this is just upsize!) Until enough say enough, and learners are, this decline will be the 21st century institutional legacy education historians will record 100 years hence. "Sure passing of tests that stamp you as having attained sufficient knowledge (note, NOT learning) allows test passers credentialed entry to "higher" economic rewards, often costing attendees prohibitive fees and indebtedness and return of servitude to the tertiary rubber stamper. See the cycle? See the slavery?
And very little has changed from that mid 19th century factory model.
Except the desire to learn about learning of those attending educational institutions that are failing to deliver learning, that is.
Human evolution desires, no demands, more authentic creative learning. And more learners are now seriously questioning education as economic rationalism. And choosing their own paths.
And that's creative.
