Why modern education doesn't work in one Wikipedia article

Dunbar's number, folks. We have schools that are 10-20x this number.

As long as I'm commenting, let me argue that it's not that simple.

My point is that it's a mistake to assume that populations above the Dunbar limit are disintegrated. Indeed, my experience is that they tend to self-organize into overlapping cliques, each of which is below the Dunbar limit.
