The power of HE

It is impossible to learn a new way of thinking about things without unlearning what one has already learnt (…). It is important to realise that because it is often the case how people think of education as the acquisition of new things as if it were an unproblematic and promising process simply of adding to what one already knows or thinks and the truth is it is transformative and that means upending the whole set of assumptions about how to see things, what’s possible, what’s real.
