This is an excerpt from our interview with Dr. Eric Hanushek, Paul and Jean Hanna Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University. See COTC Interview: http://www.childrenofthecode.org/inte...

Dr. Eric Hanushek: It's not that somebody 'knows' the current science, because the current science might be wrong. But it's that somebody knows how to learn about new science, and adapt. It's also how they learn to adapt to workplaces... how to learn to do something that they had never even thought about doing when they were in school. That's the key element.

Learning Stewards: So then the fundamental intention of our education system must be to use knowledge, skills and experience not just as the end, but as the means through which we're exercising how well someone is able to participate and become self-extending in learning what they need to learn when they need to learn it.

Dr. Eric Hanushek: Yeah, right. Precisely.

To see this in the context of how it's used on our site: http://www.learningstewards.org/the-c...

"we can no longer assume that what we think children should learn is more important than how well they can learn"
