An Immediate Payoff…

From the aforementioned new blog Ballpoint Sketches comes a link to this Steven Yates piece How I Survived Government Schools. I was born in 1962. I can definitely relate. The difference with me was, I conformed. I just did what was required as fast as I could, and then did what I wanted to do. Negative attention was more attention than I wanted to get. I have to admit that I was luckier than Yates, as I had a number of teachers who were quite good at making learning interesting rather than drudgery, but I think that was exceptional, in my case. Still, as with Yates, the majority of my real education came from reading outside the academic environs.
