The non-profit Wikipedia's plea for financial support, link; quoted in significant part.
I can't help but imagine;
A school system in which every single student has free access to the sum of all human knowledge, and the opportunity to learn how to use it safely, effectively, and efficiently; rather immediately and for the rest of their lives.
If the creation of independent lifelong learners is the ultimate goal of public education, why is it not the immediate objective?
Why are we not creating independent lifelong learners at the earliest opportunity?
Except that independent lifelong learners do not by definition, require huge bureaucracies to oversee and enable their education, while grouped and "standardized" learners do?
