Steve Jobs on Education:

"It is so much more hopeful to think that technology can solve the problems that are really more human, more organizational, and more political in nature (like education) but it can't."

"I absolutely don't believe that technology is the most important thing.... The most important thing (in education) is another person. Another person that guides your curiosity, that insights your curiosity, that feeds your curiosity. Machines cannot do that in the same way that people can. Computers are reactive...Kids need a guide, they don't need an assistant."
