Marc Marotta Professor Miller English 102 1 April 2008 Critique: Formal Education vs. Informal Education: No Happy Medium? In the essay, “Formal Education vs. Informal Education: No Happy Medium?”, Arthur Anderson discusses the rolls of formal and informal education in the lives of students. He claims that in today’s educational system, students are forced to learn from “Formal Education” without enough “Informal Education” to supplement it. The argument he makes is that without informal education students minds become filled with facts and number, explaining why so many college kids major in Business and Management these days as opposed to English and Philosophy. He uses person examples to connect the reader to his points, making it easier to relate too. Anderson gives good examples of way to combined formal and informal education in ways that can benefit the students and the teachers. He says that students and teachers shouldn’t be equals, but should be two separate bodies working together in order to create a better learning environment.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
