Learning People

"The central task of education is to implant a will and a facility for learning; it should produce not learned but learning people. The truly human society is a learning society, where grandparents, parents, and children are students together.

In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists." ~Eric Hoffer

It's an excellent point!
I agree that learning is what is primary, not learnedness; in fact, 13 things that don't make sense - a book I have recently read - points out that oftentimes learnedness is more of mainstreamness, establishment if you will, while learning is always those crazy ideas that no one supports in the beginning but revolutionize - if pursued - the way we do things. I am all for learning.
