Getting Back to Basics

The basics aren't what you think they are! Most would suggest reading, writing, and arithmetic, but I think  you'd  be somewhat surprised to find that way back when, they had it right in some respects - if you went to school here in Toronto anywhere from the 50s to the 80s (it could have been earlier, but I'm going by my own timeframe), the basics were more than just sitting at your desk doing math or reading a book. Now, keep in mind that the video is most definitely an over-the-top view of things, but the essence and philosophical underpinnings are there, albeit in a different "language structure" and application from the 21st century models.
