“You know all the statistics one hears, again intended to panic people, that by the year 1980, there will be more scientists than people, and more and more and more. What would seem to be, therefore, the future of education in a world in which the proportions of information have been reversed? In ordinary human past, there’d been more in knowledge and information available inside the classroom conditions than outside. With this spectacular reversal of this condition, it would seem to be possible that the business of the school has also reversed, that the business of the school is no longer instruction but discovery.”

— Marshall McLuhan
