I agree, automation isn't at a level it should be at, but it'll get there, and it is getting there fast. It's well within our reach... I'll get back to this after I finish writing a paper on it.
It is clearly mentioned that there would be an educational center in each city-hub (for lack of a better word). But the details of which ... I'm not entirely certain of. I would definitely find them more... hands-on and fit for learning than our current system. Possibly the entire system would be computerized, and classrooms completely done away with. Students would probably be on a wok at your own pace type of thing. Human tutors would probably be available for assistance.
This is all speculation, and the idea needs fleshed out. But it isn't anything that cannot be solved with the application of science and engineering (such as psychology).
That is a big problem, I've been wondering how to do this as well. Though I am no systems engineer. I am sure the expertise and people exist to make it a reality, but hey. Then again, it is a technical problem.
It's claimed that only 3% of the actual work is required. This society wouldn't need everyone to work at all.
And about abolition of private property, it's interesting to look a bit into Proudhon's vision of property: there would be two types. First one is "capital", second one is "of usage". When they talk about "abolition of private property", they're talking of the "capital" one. For example, someone claiming an object to be his only because he believe he'll be able to make it profitable for himself on the long term (think of apartments). The "property of usage" would still be respected: if you are using a bicycle, no one has the right to just pick it up from you and decide he needs it. As long as you are using something, it can be considered as yours exclusively. As long as you use it. Houses would most likely fall into this category, but there is subject to debate.
