mentality that learning doesn't happen only in schools
- High School fails to be both intellectually-stimulating and anchored-by-the-Real World
- College Education is too expensive to be a good investment for most people
- subsidizing high College Tuition with taxes isn't sustainable at large numbers over a long period
- having some Liberal Arts exposure is a good thing, but more than a little is probably wasted on most people
- having a chunk of time in a dense community of co-thinkers, away from both parents and personal responsibility, is a good way of Jiggling your brain. One year might be barely enough. Four years at once is probably unnecessary.
- Actually, 1 week can be enough, under the right conditions.
- lots of knowledge makes more sense after some Real World exposure (that's applicable to that field). Good MBA programs want entrants to have worked for 2 years after their undergrad time: I'm glad I had worked 4.5 years.
- No matter how long you stay in college, you'll need to learn more later. Some of this will be narrow/tactical, some may involve a change in personal World View.
- the latter doesn't necessarily require a huge amount of time/isolation
- Product Oriented Unschooling during Elementary School
- Internship/ApprenticeShip during High School (and Middle School) (continuing Product Oriented Unschooling)
- Fewer people getting 4-year College Education degree. For those who do: 2 yrs of College Education, then Internship/ApprenticeShip for 2+ yrs, then return to finish College Education?
- Work Community
- Ubi Learning: Network Of Learning, Learning Object-s, etc.
