Paul Simon-A Prophet?

When I think back
On all the crap I learned in high school
Its a wonderI can think at all
And though my lack of edu---cation
Hasnt hurt me none
I can read the writing on the wall

Kodachrome, "There Goes Rhymin' Simon," 1973

I heard this song today and I had to think: Did Paul Simon get it right? Does this still describe education in 2007, even though it was written in 1973? Here's my version, with sincere apologies to Mr. Simon:

When I think back
On all the content I had to memorize in high school
Its a wonder I can think for myself at all
And though my lack of 21st Century edu---cation
Has hurt me in a flat world
I think I can read the writing on the wall...

It still needs some work...

    David, This is awesome. I listen to Kodachrome at least a couple of times a month and lately this is exactly how it has resonated with me.
