A Future Without Schooling?

A Future Without Schooling?
Jim Shimabukuro, January 29, 2014
So, here's the question: "Can we, educators, imagine a future without traditional schools and teachers? The same can be asked of higher ed, Can we imagine a future without traditional colleges and professors?"
