      We could use more Counter Education in the world, especially when it applies to coming up with alternatives for higher-ed.

      “The 1960s was a time of extensive experimentation with alternative pedagogies. Before Blueprint was published, Stein and Miller actually went out and field-tested their ideas at various colleges. Ultimately, what they created was a library; a library is the very core of their project.”

      I love how the very core of this project was just to simply build out a library. Which really when you think about it, the material in which we spend time learning while in academia is based entirely off of the books we are required to read and/or learn from.

      I am so curious to see the way that Alt-EDU shapes out over time.
