Government School Nightmare

Why fix a system designed to DESTROY individual thought?

I've never done this type of post before. Really, I try my best to stick to farm stuff, personal stuff, not pull in too much from the outside. Politics is really outside my realm because I don't agree with anyone, liberal or conservative because as far as I can tell liberal and conservative both want to tell other people how to live their lives and I think that is wrong. But this schooling thing, it is so pervasive, and good people, thinking people, have sometimes just not quite yet gotten around to questioning it. Click the title of this post and begin questioning.

What is needed for several decades is the kind of wildly-swinging free market we had at the beginning of our national history. It cannot be overemphasized that no body of theory exists to accurately define the way children learn, or which learning is of most worth. By pretending the existence of such we have cut ourselves off from the information and innovation that only a real market can provide. Fortunately our national situation has been so favourable, so dominant through most of our history, that the margin of error afforded has been vast.
Gatto, from the article
