What Does it Mean to Be Educated?

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERABlake Boles has been writing and speaking about self-directed learning for over a decade, most recently for the Alliance for Self-Directed Education.  In his article What Does it Mean to Be Educated?,  he offers a somewhat historical perspective of where we are in the long-term arc of public education in the United States.  As Blake points out, schools haven’t changed much in the past century. Self-Directed Learning is a hopeful, current response to this otherwise discouraging story. We are honored to be included in Blake’s description of people and programs providing optimism and opportunities at this time.
