I believe that learning is the practice of freedom. The problem is that school is so often confused with learning. It re-inforces the present and preserves the status quo. School is almost propaganda for the status quo. School does teach most of us how to read and that is a liberation skill for all human beings need to have. School however is not the only place a human being can learn to read. Most of our learning takes place in our social world.
We teach and learn from the people around us. Learning comes from the truth around you. Empowerment comes from the self discovery of that truth. We must all become self learners and self teachers with those around us. Learning liberates the spirit!!
