Modern education increasingly resembles a factory-line. Students are shipped in and shaped to populate the market with products and buyers. Gutenberg believes a good education does more than prepare a student for the market: A good education molds our desires toward goodness and provides the skill to pursue goodness. In February 2014, Gutenberg hosted a conference on education. Speakers included Gutenberg tutors Chris Swanson and Tim McIntosh as well as Andrew Kern, founder and president of the CiRCE Institute, and Brandon Vance, two-time U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion.
