Some people say, if kids didn't have to go to school, they'd all be out in the streets.

有些人说,如果孩子们不用上学,他们就会闲散在大街上。

My reply is "No, they wouldn't."

我的回复是“不,他们不会。”

First, even if school stayed just the way they are, children would spend at least some time there, because that's where they'd be likely to find friends.

首先,即使学校保持原样,孩子们至少会在那里呆上一段时间,因为在那里他们可能会找到朋友。

Second, schools wouldn't stay the way they are.

其次,学校不会保持原来的样子。

They'd get better, because we would have to start making them what they ought to be right now.

学校会变得更好,因为我们必须开始让学校成为现在应该成为的样子。

Last, if we stirred up our brains and gave children a little help, those who did not want to go to school could find other things to do—things many children now do during their holidays.

最后,如果我们唤醒我们的大脑,给孩子一点帮助,那么那些不想上学的人可以找到其他的事情去做——现在许多孩子在假期做的事情。

There's something easier we could do.

还有更简单的方法。

We need to get kids out of the school buildings, give them a chance to learn about the world at first hand.

我们需要让孩子们走出校舍,让他们有机会亲自了解世界。

In Philadelphia and Portland, Oregon, plans are being drawn up for public schools that won’t have any school buildings at all.

在费城,以及俄勒冈州的波特兰市,公立学校正在计划不再建任何校舍。

That will take the students out into the city and help them to use it and its people as a resource.

这将使学生走出校园走进城市,帮助学生把城市和城市里的人当作一种资源。

In other words, students perhaps in groups, perhaps independently, will go to libraries, museums, exhibitions, courtrooms, radio and TV stations, meetings, businesses, and laboratories to learn about their world and society at first hand.

换句话说,学生们可能以小组的形式,也可能是个人形式,去图书馆、博物馆、展览、法庭、电台和电视台、会议、企业和实验室,了解世界和社会的第一手资料。

A small private school in Washington is already doing this. It makes sense. We need more of it.

华盛顿的一所小型私立学校已经在这样做了。这是有意义的。我们需要更多。
