I found this interesting discussion off a link that Justine sent. (http://weblogg-ed.com/)
In it a guy called Seth Godin is interviewed about the reason public education was set up for industrialisation and why this won't give much of a future for the children of today if we don't nuture their willingness and ability to seek their own topics, question everything, and participate with others from anywhere in meaningful ways that could end up changing the world?!? Are we at Myross Bush School on the right track with our curriculum planning and inquiry process discovery??
