Neil Postman on the Purpose of Education, Schooling and Learning

A recent encounter with a visionary leader in learning led me back to Neil Postman's (1995) The End of EducationReading through this work again, I am struck by so much.  Today it was Neil quoting Nietzsche...."He who has a why to live, can bear almost any how" Neil goes on to offer, "This applies as much to learning as it does to living" (p.4). 

How true.
