  3. Yes, and my questions: If learning is migrating into networks, and communities of meaning, which I believe it is, then what is the moral purpose of school? Is school morally defensible? Under what conditions?

    These are some of the questions I’m interested in.

    • I still can’t figure out the moral purpose of school. However, I still believe that under any system, the goal of education is to think well about life.
