The Purpose of Education - Let's talk!

Paul Simbeck Hampson has started an interesting conversation on the purpose of education. You may not think this has anything to do with corporate training, but I would argue that it most certainly does. Corporations tried to copy the University model and most failed. Maybe "failed" isn't the right term...many just didn't get the right amount of business value and so they shut 'em down. Will our local and federal government ever be that bold? Is it time to admit the current educational system is not meeting the "Purpose of Education"? Maybe. Maybe not. But that's the discussion. Let's talk!

The Purpose of Education

Education in the largest sense is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character or physical ability of an individual. In its technical sense, education is the process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills and values from one generation to another. ~   Wikipedia

Make the most of whatever it is that floats your boat…
