38 Play is Learning Our school system is based largely on conditioning rather than learning. The only way children can learn is through what adults interpret as play. This is why students retain so little of what they are taught in school. (Children retain 3-5% of curriculum - Carnegie Foundation, 1963). What is learned in a state of play becomes a permanent neural pattern in the brain. It is never lost. If we recognized the direct correspondence between play and learning, and the dramatic difference between learning and conditioning, schooling would vastly more successful. John Chilton Pearce with Michael Mendizza
