In order to repair the Studyplace site from damage caused by spamming and vandalism, we have reverted it to its condition in late October, 2011. In addition, new accounts made since October 21st will need to be re-established and the ability to make changes to the site will be blocked for all users who lack administrative privileges.

This reversion erases edits and additions made after October 20, 2011. Users who are maintaining sites for academic courses during the spring 2012 semester should email editors@studyplace.org to make arrangements for updating and maintaining your course site for the semester. You may want, however, to explore alternative arrangements. Owing to financial and staff limitations, early in the summer of 2012, Studyplace will become a static site, useful for archival purposes.

Feature: Emilia, or, The City as Educator

Emilia is a novel of education, a work of fiction meant to serve as a serious thought experiment, inspired by Rousseau's Emile. It explores the idea of "going to city" as an alternative to going to college, through the life of Emilia, its heroine, her family and friends. As the story develops, the ideas behind this alternative unfold. The benefits and challenges of "going to city" come into sharper focus as Emilia takes ownership of her education and embraces the challenge. More...

Education is slavery, it enchains the mind and makes it a resource for class power. When the ruling class preaches the necessity of an education it invariably means an education in necessity. Education is not the same as knowledge.
