One lesson we can learn from pre-industrial peoples is the power of storytelling. I am struck by how important storytelling is among tribal peoples; it forms the basis of their educational systems. The Celtic peoples, for example, insisted that only the poets could be teachers. Why?

What if our educational systems were to insist that teachers be poets and storytellers and artists? What transformations would follow? Matthew Fox
