Undoing Academic Time

“Time is the “first technology” because it is the most controlling of all the structures which define “school.” Learning is, of course, timeless. It exists in its own temporal zone, unique to each individual, and different for each thing “learned.” But school is all about the clock.”

Time is not on our side. Specifically, academic time.
