Schooling could be bad for you !

Picking up on my Twitter friends today I noticed a tweet from @whatedsaid referring to a blog post from ‘swiftkick’ where Erica Goldson graduated as valedictorian of Coxsackie-Athens High School. Instead of using her graduation speech to celebrate the triumph of her victory, the school, and the teachers that made it happen, she channeled her inner Ivan Illich and de-constructed the logic of a valedictorian and the whole educational system.

Erica posted the whole speech on Sign of the Times … well worth a read and a listen on Youtube as she denounces schooling … student voice being heard but will it be listened to?

Especially interesting are the comments on the ‘swiftkick’ blog post.
