manish jain - deschooling the world

localization isn't about ppt presentation, research in the un, it's about being.
the hidden curriculum
1. hierarchy of knowledge
silencing voices that don't have the said credentials
2. commodification of learning
play becomes a commodity, water becomes a commodity
3. fragmentation of knowing
creating fragmented beings/communities

competition - my winning has to be about your losing
compulsion - that people aren't intelligent enough on their own
