Liz Coleman talks education at TED

Liz Coleman proposes that our higher education system has become too professionalized, too specialized, to the point of mitigating civic engagement. Technical competence overrides the teaching and asking of bigger questions about what kind of a world are we making with all our knowledge. She brings up some very valid points and one particularly inspiring quote.

" The reality: No one has the answers. Everyone has the responsibility."
