A Special Supplement: Education Without School: How it Can be Done

By Ivan Illich

This apt and candid article by Illich on networks, certification and the disestablishment of schools is thought provoking, a challenge, so good.

From the Article:

“The alternative to social control through the schools is the voluntary participation in society through networks which provide access to all its resources for learning. In fact these networks now exist, but they are rarely used for educational purposes. The crisis of schooling, if it is to have any positive consequence, will inevitably lead to their incorporation into the educational process.”
