w spoke to reporters a bit about education yesterday:
“You’re asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, and the answer is ‘yes.'”
I agree 100%. Seems like the basic stuff of education; why we have courses in biology, victorian literature, economics, comparative religions, mythology, and so forth.
Apparently w wasn’t making a general statement though. It seems that he may have been talking about some kind of mixing of subjects; creating one of those hybrid multi-discline classes: something like Remedial Mysticism 100: Survey of Biology and Religious Mythology.
I wanted to rise to the bait yesterday but did not have time. There were, though, plenty of other voices…go read’m!
By the way, does anyone have a link to a transcript of w’s interaction with that small group of reporters?
