Education and Ecstasy.
Leonard, George B.
The highly interactive, regenerative, technological society now emerging will require something akin to mass genius, mass creativity, and lifelong learning; and schools as they now exist are already obsolete. Education of the future will be, and could be now, a utopian, voluntary, joyful, lifetime experience for its own sake. Our present level of education could be achieved in one-third the time or less, and could be extended to expansion of the mind and senses. In the future, children at school will learn delight, not aggression; heightened awareness and control; and the commonly-agreed-upon skills of the ongoing culture. They will learn how to ring creative changes, how to learn, and how to explore and enjoy the infinite possibilities in relations between people. This dimension of play and fun needs to be added to present-day electronic tutors. (JG)
