I blame children's ignorance on the type of isolated socialism I observe all around me, every day. It used to be if a child wanted to learn how to hunt he would visit the master hunter of the tribe. If he wanted to learn to make tents he'd visit the tent maker. In tribes usually the children are brought up by the community, not just by their parents. If the communities would become less isolated and more socialite then we should be able to raise more educated children.

The question is how to do it. I would suggest many neighborhood social events. Of course I don't have resources for this nor the time to assemble people and require the resources so I really can't talk much.
