A Learning-Centered Life

You have wasted a day if you haven’t learned something new.

The most recent piece by David Brooks explores “The Question-Driven Life” of Philip Leakley. While “some people center their lives around money or status or community or service to God, [the life of Leakley] seems to be a learning-centered life, where little bits of practical knowledge are the daily currency, where the main vocation is to be preoccupied with some exciting little project or maybe a dozen.

Why aren’t our schools more focused on cultivating learning-centered lives?

What can we do about it?
