“A society which is mobile, which is full of channels for the distribution of a change occurring anywhere, must see to it that its members are educated to personal initiative and adaptability. Otherwise, they will be overwhelmed by the changes in which they are caught and whose significance or connections they do not perceive.” – John Dewey, philosopher, psychologist, and educational reformer (20 Oct 1859-1952)
There are not a lot of things that I am in agreement on with Mr. Dewey. This one I am. It was true then. It is even more so today.
