Ivan Illich

Ivan Illich
“Schools are designed on the assumption that there is a secret to everything in life; that the quality of life depends on knowing that secret; that secrets can be known only in orderly successions; and that only teachers can properly reveal these secrets.

“The changes are so profound that, from the perspective of human history, there has never been a time of greater promise or potential peril.”
Klaus Schwab, The Fourth Industrial Revolution
