TftD #13

Why is it that in spite of the fact that teaching by pouring in, and learning by passive absorption, are universally condemned, (educators) are still so entrenched in its practice?

Education is not an affair of 'telling' and being told, but an active constructive process.

-- John Dewey, Democracy and Education (1916)
