Education of Boys (2) - Information Age

In the information age, the education factory is a redundant technology. Massive volumes of information and knowledge are now available to everyone anywhere. We no longer need a knowledgeable teacher to tell us what we need to know. All that is needed is someone to teach us to search for information and to distinguish between good information and unreliable information. The production line of the education factory does not do this very well, because it is designed for a one size fits all approach, whereas in the information age, education must be personalised to be relevant.
