As teachers we have to reflect on our practices, and I believe it is important to deconstruct one’s own practices from time to time in order to see the big picture. This recording of the late British philosopher Alan Watts is inspirational in these terms. Education plays a big part in forming how we live our lives, and one could question whether there are more or less accepted ways of leading one’s life or not. Watts’s argument is very critical to a static educational system where children are encouraged to do things they do not want. This is all a very comprehensive discussion, but I think it is important to challenge students in pursuing their interests and dreams.
