Consumerism's Current Restraints
The full-scale leap to consumerized learning is at present constrained by forces as thin as gossamer. There isn’t much holding it back as we can see by societal factors. First of all, consider that many families today are dual-income and rely on public education for occupying the time of school-aged kids. This is a positive only when parents are convinced the time is usefully spent. If it is considered irrelevant, which is happening increasingly, then this consideration is potentially at risk. Merely occupying time can be done by other constructs.
