Hugh Mann on Education

Education is a paradox. It informs and conforms us with facts, but it also immerses and rehearses us with minutiae. Enlightened but benighted, and filled with the helium of higher education, our head is in the sky, and our feet barely touch the ground. What should we do? We should treat this heady intoxication with brevity, simplicity, clarity, and humility, since education is not pontification, fabrication, or polysyllabification, but public communication for and with all people – past, present, and future.

Best regards,
Hugh Mann
