“Many students, especially those who are poor, intuitively know what the schools do for them. They school them to confuse process and substance. Once these become blurred, a new logic is assumed: the more treatment there is, the better are the results; or, escalation leads to success. The pupil is thereby “schooled” to confuse teaching with learning, grade advancement with education, a diploma with competence, and fluency with the ability to say something new.


@drunkplato (In case you missed it, there are two other parts of the quote after that first part. :)

It's from Ivan Illich's "Deschooling Society", which I first learned about from this weird video:

"Scary School Nightmare"
