I attended a private catholic school up to the 6th grade. I finished my schooling through public schools. If you think public schools brainwash
children, private schools form kids beliefs at a very early age. There's nothing like brainwashing religious beliefs on young minds, learning about
God's Wrath and burning in hell if we didn't follow their religious doctrine. Some extreme examples of brainwashing is the Muslim and Amish
education. Not only do they brainwash their children ideology at a very young age, they enslave them in a particular dress code for the rest of their
I remember during my private school days being terrified of going astray or thinking outside the box. Becoming an alter boy wasn't something I
enjoyed doing but was something that gave young boys a feeling of belonging to a popular club. "Look at me, I'm on the church stage, I'm an alter
There's only one thing I give a lot of credit to my private school upbringing was it taught me to treat people with respect.
I remember my first week in a public school. I though holy crap, this is awesome! I was able to be comfortable and attend school in jeans and a
t-shirt! I didn't have to stand-up every time I was picked on to give an answer in class! (I made a fool out of myself the first time I did and the
teacher informed me I didn't need to stand when I gave an answer!)No more memorizing prayers, and being subjected to ridiculous consequences at the
hands of nuns! Such as, knuckles being slapped with a ruler, holding a sheet of paper against the blackboard with your nose for a half hour, writing
our multiplication tables 5 or 10 times each, standing on one foot for 15 minutes, and of course getting the paddle. It just never made any sense
that nuns who were supposed to lead a life of love for your fellow man like Jesus preached, would engage in delivering pain to a child.
Public schools opened my mind and actually made me realize the hypocrisy and brainwashing I experienced during my private school days. I was able
give my opinions and listen to the opinions of others. I was able to choose what to believe and what I didn't believe without worrying about being
threatened with fire and brimstone! Public school teachers are free to a certain extent to give their opinions on the subjects they teach. They're
not held to a specific ideological outline.
