"There??s no way that the educational system, a monoculture if there ever was one, is going to manifest the kind of reform needed at every level.  We??ve designed our schooling system to clamp down on unorthodoxy in a big way.  Even if we allow the unorthodox to thrive in our monolithic system, it becomes a cult of personality. ... These kind of polymathic geniuses can really make a school hum, but once they go, a program often dies with them. ... Maybe what we need in order to reinvigorate American school systems is a broad-based buy-0ut, a sort of inverse-voucher program, where parents say, 'this school has failed my kid for the last time.  I??m going to plop him down in front of Sesame Street reruns and YouTube videos, and give him a library card, and see if those stopgap measures can do better.'" [R.G.: I'd just like to add that the notion of an "American school system" is probably part of the problem; what 'we' need is to stop thinking about what 'we' need, and start thinking about how this here individual child or adolescent or adult can live a better, smarter life in the near-, middle-, and long-term. The answer often isn't going to be the same from one person to the next.
