Subversive but True - So What Will YOU Do?

Mark Kawabe - Sunday, February 28, 2010
If you've ever wondered why we learned what we did in school and what its purpose was, here's an interesting take on it from Seth Godin.

Brainwashed

Personally, this rings so very, very true.

I printed this off to for my son to read. He's in grade 7 right now and starting to make decisions about what high school to attend, think about career options etc.

I wonder if this is too subversive for him to read - whether it will make him question the value of his education so much he fails to succeed as a student. Then again, I look at my own life and wonder if the lessons I learned during my time being "educated" could be learned in different ways.

Do you think you've been brainwashed? If so, what are you going to do about it?
