The production line model

100 years after Ford’s Model T production line success, the US is subsidising the scrapping of old cars. Schools based on the same model are still with us – is it the right approach for the times? Tom March points out that wikipedia fulfils most of the ideal school criteria – respect, willingness to adapt, value colleagues, trust etc..

Does a crowd-sourced approach work better for education than a production line model?

Can schools learn from Wikipedias success? Or, WHAT can we learn?
