Paradise lost?

August 20, 2002

It's dangerous, almost seditious, in our consumerist culture to teach a student to think about the essential questions of life. Poetry, literature and philosophy have a way of clogging the wheels of commerce by questioning the need for getting and spending. The saddest aspect of this process is that even after it's all paved over and students spend the better part of the school day manipulating a mouse, they will never realize the paradise lost.
