School systems

I once read an article that the public school system developed at the same time as capitalism because what school systems really train children to be is good little factory workers, or good little office workers. Follow instructions, do what you are told, get along with everyone, have marketable skills. As much as math and science and art, school systems teach conformity, social conformity and intellectual conformity for the assembly line of life.

I think they are efforts to change this, efforts to make it more flexible to different learning styles and aptitudes. But at a certain point, it becomes clear that, really, the best place for a child to learn is at home, with family who love and understand him, or her.

The revolution could not come soon enough for my little Palmer.
