Does School Really Teach Us?

I’m not really a fan of the modern schooling system.

When you think about it, schooling is a contradictory process.

We are told that we are all unique, and to be our own person.

Yet, when it comes to schooling, we are all lumped into some standardised test to assess how much we have “learnt”.

As you may remember, I am going on a bit of a journey into Stoicism.

And today, I am across this quote by Seneca.

“We learn not in the school, but in life.”

If it was relevant then, over 2,000 years ago, and has stayed relevant, (otherwise it would have been forgotten), why aren’t we paying attention to it now?

Are you concerned about how much Facebook and Google know about you and your browsing habits?

I am. This is why I use the Brave Browser.

It is also why there are no Google or Facebook tracking cookies on this site.

(If you install and use the browser, I will get some BAT from the Brave team, though no one will know you have done it, or anything about you).
