Did Ivan Illich apologize for being part of the Catholic University of Puerto Rico or his subsequent teaching at different universities? At some point he formed the opinion that schools cannot not help students. Did he have this opinion when he was a young adult or was it something that he gradually came to believe?
How did Illich reconcile his love of the Catholic Church with its many schools when he himself was so opposed to schools?
Update on 4/28/19:
I tend to think Illich didn't like any type of school. Is there a way to know he made an exception for Catholic schools?
The pupil is thereby "schooled" to confuse teaching with learning, grade advancement with education, a diploma with competence, and fluency with the ability to say something new.
...we must disestablish school... The power of school thus to divide social reality has no boundaries: education becomes unworldly and the world becomes noneducational. ... Unquestionably, the educational process will gain from the deschooling of society even though this demand sounds to many schoolmen like treason to the enlightenment. But it is enlightenment itself that is now being snuffed out in the schools.
