Straw Men Don't See Too Good

Posted By: Dick Schutz on January 18, 2006
 
“The means and ends of education are shaped by multiple visions of educational virtue.”
Only in our dreams.

The means and ends of education are shaped by the products/protocols used by teachers and other educational caregivers and media the child comes into contact with.

Setting up a straw guy to knock down so that your straw guy looks good begs the question of how to achieve real-life educational aspirations.

Well, that's a little harsh. There is a "vision thing," and belief systems are extremely important in every sector of life. But they are insufficent to achieve means and ends. If visions were horses, all beggars would ride.
