...the real measure of learning, the real object of education, is not grades or awards — fine as those are — not success or even diplomas, excellent as those accomplishments surely are. You know that the true garland of learning, the real object of education, is to equip yourself for service to others. – Donald Eastman, President, Eckerd College

 

 

We believe open access to knowledge is vital for a life of unlimited possibilities and opportunities.  To that end, how we educate ourselves, from childhood and into adulthood, and in, in fact, throughout our whole lives, is critical component of the Life Unlimited.

The word “education” stems from the Latin educare suggesting a “leading out” or “leading forth.”  How we are educated, what it means to “be educated” and, in fact, the purpose of an education in the first place, has evolved over time to mean different things to different people, and has long been at the center of heated debate in America and elsewhere.

Eureka Factory believes true education reform should embrace any method that a learner values, needs or from which he or she benefits. Real educational choice should include free-range choice in learning across public, private, home education or any combination or variation thereof.  Lifelong learning should be as easily accessible as a book in a public library or, better yet – tools in a public library!

Today, these choices include everything from standard public schools, charter schools, magnet schools, a variety of private schools, dual enrollment, part time enrollment, and home based educational choices like homeschooling and online learning options, innovative post secondary options and public makerspaces, hackerspaces, Fab Labs and more.
