Whatfor Schools?

The uses and abuses of education have occupied me of late.  We force kids to undergo over a decade of this system – 6 hours/day, 5 days/week, 30-35 weeks per year.  Indoctrination or training the mind? or just waste of time?

Or just a holding pen for kids?

There are many views, but only one outcome – the ones they endure and survive.

“Down through history and all over the world, education has had two great goals: to help people become smart and to help them become good.”
