School should be fun

Why not bring our media and entertainment know-how to the problem of BORINGNESS in education?  From the business/economy standpoint, I figure this is 100m dollars in value in the first two years, and large benefits subsequently. 

We already know that students ought to be free to play around.
That 'teaching' should be more driven by student curiosity than by the teachers' plans.
And that business-as-usual is NOT working: Education is failing to excite youngsters nearly as much as television, sex, gossip, money, or even photographs of their own faces.
So, education has issues on many dimensions: it limits activity, stems discovery; it is thought of as BORING.

If school is to compete with television for instance, for youngsters' attention, here is just how hyper it may need to become.   


I work in education, so of course I know people who think that school should not be fun.  I sort of disagree.  I think if you engage and excite first, you're halfway there.
