Students are oversaturated with fragmented academic information, not underexposed to content. They are underexposed to the passion of knowing themselves and their society. They are starved for meaningful contexts, for intellectual and emotional pleasure in the life of the mind, for holistic learning that feeds their understanding. Schooling teaches many students that education is a pointless ritual wrapped in meaningless words.
—Ira Shor, _Empowering_Education_ (U Chicago P, 1992), 83.
This book has been a great read so far, and I’m only three chapters in. I’ll probably post about the previous book I read, _Distinguishing_Disability_, at some point too.
