Education is about Producing, Not Consuming.
Hartoonian, Michael
Social Education, v61 n6 p365-66 Oct 1997
Criticizes the current notion of defining students as "consumers" of education. Argues that this metaphor encourages a passive sense of entitlement in place of the hard work, discipline, and engagement that is necessary for learning to occur. Maintains that student are "producers" of their own knowledge. (MJP)
