A continuing conversation

by Mr. Sheehy

Regular (or not-so regular) blog readers should not miss the continuing conversation beneath a recent post (Someone asked me today, What is the role of the teacher? and I, unsuprisingly, suggested an answer) with Zac, a student in the San Francisco Bay area who was frustrated with his AP Chemistry teacher. He has posted in the comments a paper he wrote regarding the purpose of school. It is called “The Fallacies of Knowledge” and I’m grateful that Zac has been willing to share it here.
