In order to encourage students to study by themselves, we must first be sure that they can complete "encyclopedic" content with other knowledge and experiences gained outside the classroom. This is essential and poses another challenge, where value is placed not only on knowledge, but also on abilities, which, while sometimes difficult to measure, are very important.
Schools and high schools do much more than merely transfer information. They provide a space for socializing, building citizenship, defining identity, and expressing friendships, among many other things. It is possible to rethink what students spend their time on at school.
Schools should have bigger windows and wider doors. Not only to bring society inside, but also to open schools up to society. The divide between the two must be reduced.
