Of hammocks and schools

Been doing some soul searching, rebuilding my Personal Mission Statement, and why? I know just where I want to work:

His next project is to develop a school in Sao Paulo based on the principles of freedom and flexibility. “The schooling system seems very stupid, much as the business world is,” he says. “As with cars and airlines it needs someone from outside the business to rethink it from scratch. For instance, why do schoolchildren need a two-month summer holiday? That’s a hangover from agrarian societies when farm children were needed for harvesting. Why are children in London still taking that amount of time off?”

This guy understands how offices are supposed to work; I’ll be interested to see where he goes with the school.
