    In the New World, "students are learning how to live satisfying, productive lives. They're not wasting their time memorizing facts and studying irrelevant materials which they'll soon forget because they don't use them in their daily life. Perfect examples would be memorization of historical or geographical details, or [the Old World's] devotion to learning foreign languages, algebra, and geometry, which most people never need to use."

    "We don't confine learning to the inside of classrooms. Almost everyone is outdoors."
