This was my fathers favorite book about education. Dad was a teacher both in public school and in the US Army Air Corps during WWII and the US Air Force during and after the Korean War.
This is a satire - is a discussion in a bar in Tijuana, Mexico between a professor and his student. It is about how education was in the far past... suggesting that we often educate for living in the past, not the present or future. ~1995~
