In the future, schools will no longer enjoy the same monopoly on children’s time. I know I am correct because politicians say the exact opposite when they advocate longer school days and years. That is just the last gasp of a dying bureaucracy.
School itself is a technology, and like all other technologies, has affordances and constraints. School leaders need to determine how and why young people and a teacher should be co-located in the same physical space when more parents work from home, and the Web allows for all sorts of information sharing.
