The reason I particularity like this paper is because it starts with a basic question: “what is school for?” He also touches on the needs of the Industrial Age versus where we are now, and strikes at the heart of learning with his insightful view of “doubt and certainty.” Readers of The Explanation Age will recognize this as the foundational element of all reason, which is the balance we make between questions from curiosity versus questions from conviction.
It now seems abundantly clear to all that our institutions are broken at the “model” level. My hope is that we now turn our attention to fulfilling on the mission ahead. We have enough publications that point out the problem, and now have ample awareness that the problem is at the “model” level. It is time to start focusing on the publications that provide alternative models of learning, for education as well as business innovation. I respectfully submit “The Explanation Age.”
