Maybe the way of the future is not sitting in a classroom, but that would require more self-directed learners... and there is a lack of such in my experience, at least in the commonly recognized academic fields. Everyone has their own interests, whether inside or outside the classic realm of academia, but maybe that's a distinction worth respecting.
