In response to Sharon's question of Joe...

Joe -
        What's your basis for concluding that "folks in our
traditional schools who are considered 'highly skilled teachers'
are doing such an inferior job of 'teaching'"?

I think Scott has already explained how this occurs.

Sharon -
... It takes a great deal of effort to _prevent_ the human mind from
learning...
Perhaps the best single way to prevent the human mind from acquiring
information is to start rigidly presenting it in a fashion which is driven by
an outside person or curriculum
(ie instruction), rather than simply letting people explore(...) at their own
instigation.

This certainly speaks to my experiences.
