Structured education and forced education are two different things.
Currently, and for quite a while, schools have been little more than indoctrination centers. Schools arent the basis for civi8lization, the real basis
goes from parent to child. In the wild, this basic training of the young ensures the most vital skills and lessons are learned. Once, schools simply
tought wisdom and knowldge. Those created schools of thought. Fine.
Now they are centers to teach distorted history, political agendas, ect. There is hardly anything education about schools in this, or many societies.
Kids come out indoctrinated, a few resist. Colleges are similar, but are a choice, unlike early education, which is required.
Thus, i distrust and dislike educational institutions in thier current form, and in the proposed future forms. Mind twisting, turning kids brains to
jello. Hence, why so many kids know whats politically correct, or, in some towns, whats the good and christian thing to do, but cant find America on a
map. Thus, the kids come out good and brainwashed, but really, little more educated.
Schools are a battleground for the young mind. Some conservatives hold sway, some, the libs do. Some are ridiculous. Hardly any teach.
It is niether the right, nor duty, of schools to teach morality, that is the parents duty. nor is it right for schools to try and enforce opinions
within students. it is simply thier job to offer knowledge. Schools hardly stick to this basic principal anymore. Thus, the enforce some sort of
mindless conformity, or another.
Kids should not be forced to identify with ANYTHING. They should instead be elft to decide what they wish to identify with. once we start pushing
towards this and that, well.......we train sheep, not people.
I am fully aware that organized education, in this less than perfect society, is a necessary evil, since most parents cant be around to be able to
teach thier kids on thier own, who ultimately, are the ones who should have that authority. Assume nothing.
