  • Most important meme of the day is Change









  • Illich:
    To liberate access to things by abolishing the control which persons and institutions now exercise over their educational values.
    To liberate the sharing of skills by guaranteeing freedom to teach or exercise them on request.
    To liberate the critical and creative resources of people by returning to individual persons the ability to call and hold meetings — an ability now increasingly monopolized by institutions which claim to speak for the people.
    To liberate the individual from the obligation to shape his expectations to the services offered by any established profession — by providing him with the opportunity to draw on the experience of his peers and to entrust himself to the teacher, guide, adviser, or healer of his choice. Inevitably the deschooling of society will blur the distinctions between economics, education, and politics on which the stability of the present world order and the stability of nations now rest.

    4. 4. Ivan Illich, 1926 - 2002 Ivan Illich, Austrian philosopher, Roman Catholic priest and critic of the institutions of contemporary western culture and their effects on the provenance and practice of education, medicine, work, energy use, and economic development. “Deschooling Society”
    5. 5. Separated at birth?
    6. 6. “Together we have come to realize that for most men the right to learn is curtailed by the obligation to attend school.” "School divides life into two segments, which are increasingly of comparable length. As much as anything else, schooling implies custodial care for persons who are declared undesirable elsewhere by the simple fact that a school has been built to serve them."
    7. 7. “Schools are designed on the assumption that there is a secret to everything in life; that the quality of life depends on knowing that secret; that secrets can be known only in orderly successions; and that only teachers can properly reveal these secrets.”
    8. 8. “New educational institutions would...facilitate access for the learner: to allow him to look into the windows of the control room or the parliament, if he cannot get in by the door.”
    9. 9. “When pressed to specify how they acquired what they know and value, will readily admit that they learned it more often outside than inside school. Their knowledge of facts, their understanding of life and work came to them from friendship or love, while viewing TV, or while reading, from examples of peers or the challenge of a street encounter. Or they may have learned what they know through the apprenticeship ritual for admission to a street gang or the initiation to a hospital, newspaper city room, plumber's shop, or insurance office.”
    10. 10. “A good educational system should have three purposes: it should 1. provide all who want to learn with access to available resources at any time in their lives; 2. empower all who want to share what they know to find those who want to learn it from them; and, finally, 3. furnish all who want to present an issue to the public with the opportunity to make their challenge known.”
