As younger people reveal their private lives on the Internet, the older generation looks on with alarm and misapprehension not seen since the early days of rock and roll. The future belongs to the uninhibited.

Scale Quality Education Outcomes
Individualised learning once produced fine craftsmen. The master taught the apprentice. Only a few had the time or opportunity to gain the depth of knowledge needed to achieve excellence, and excellence was rare.

Now... learning can again become individualised , and again produce excellence.
