It has been very interesting for me to contrast elective learning in adulthood with childhood schooling. I am spending my time and money to master a second language. A piece of paper 'demonstrating' my proficiency is of no inherent use or value to me. Being proficient is of use to me. The difference became very obvious when a substitute teacher began trying to teach me to pass the test rather than master the necessary knowledge and skills. The questions this raises are how do I demonstrate mastery and how does the school prove the value created without a standardised test? Like it or not education must prove value created (for both sides) and I think this question needs answering first before looking at how to deliver the education.

The skills needed to reform a company to be run by people with limited experience are far higher than those needed to run a complicated venture! I am, however, available for the right price.
