More on education

Some of the thinkers over on Luke’s blog pointed out that specialization is actually crippling in today’s world of fluid careers and multiple proficiencies, and that a base holistic education is crucial for adaptability in jobs.

I do not disagree with this. I do believe that the base holistic education should be acquired earlier than college, though. I also think we could learn more about a profession by apprenticing to a mentor in one year than we currently do attending lectures for four. In effect, I want to streamline the educational system, root out the redundancy and inefficiencies, and, while we’re at it, toss out the people who aren’t actually interested in bettering themselves. I believe that a community-based system of targeted learning would meet these goals.
