When I went to school, I started out in public school.
I aced every course, came out on top of the class every time, and never had to study anything because I had read so much that it was, frankly, truly
But then, I changed to a Catholic school, and boy, was I in for a wake-up call.. I still went to school with the same attitude but what they where
seeing was like light-years ahead of the stuff I used to see in public school.
In the 6th year of public schooling they where still going on about the basic math and simple equations, in the 1st year of high school Catholic
network they where studying advanced algorhytmics, so they must have had a basis upon which to expand into this area.. just as an indicator, this was
true for every class I took.. except for the religious hour..
I flunked that year, bigtime, and had to 'learn to learn' all over again.
Public schools don't give anything besides the illusion you are being educated, if you want your kids to have real education, avoid them like
the plague! Offcourse, for many people this is not exactly self-evident, as the Catholic schooling network was, and propably still is, a lot
more expensive to follow then the public ones..
so I agree with the premise that public schools are designed to dumb down the populace, while only the ones who have parents wealthy enough to kick up
the bread are allowed entrance in the 'inner circle of knowledge'.
Money truly makes the world go round, neh ?
