On the Essence of Education
Sidorkin, Alexander M.
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v30 n5 p521-527 Sep 2011
Educational reforms in developed countries are not successful, because we do not have a clear understanding of what is education. The essence of education is the limits of its improvement. Education is understood as the artificial extension of human ability to learn, as the product of learner's own efforts, and finally, as a series of historic forms of labor arrangements.
