To Quote Brett From SchoolSucksproject: “In my 12 years of teaching, school sucks has been perhaps the most common phrase I’ve heard students use to describe their feelings about “public education” or more appropriately, compulsory schooling. Yet this seemingly bitter and reductive slogan is actually quite clever. School sucks is perhaps the most accurate and astute synopsis of the system I’ve ever heard. The 15,000-hour process of compulsory schooling has a dramatic effect on the mind of a child. When we first enter these institutions at age six, many of our best personal attributes are already in place. We are curious, innovative, unique, creative and hopeful in ways that we will rarely be able to replicate throughout the rest of our lives. But over time, school sucks those essential attributes out of too many of us…and replaces them with predictability, obedience and apathy. Unfortunately, for over a century this process has been referred to as “education.” It isn’t. Our aim is to reclaim that word, to take it back from those who wish to use institutionalized schools (at all levels) to mold impressionable minds into desirable and predictable finished products. Education is a journey by the individual, for the individual.” -Brett....
If you would like to hear a sample of SchoolSucksProject you can go Here:
I take the opportunity to ask every child I am around (even adults) how school is going for them or what was their school experience like. Why? Because I have found, in general, that my experience was very different than a lot of peoples. What about you? Did you enjoy your public school experience? If you are in school...do you like it? And finally....What do you think about Home-school? You can post your comment anonymously...Jan Smith...John Doe...etc. Remember only a NAME and a COMMENT is needed...NOTHING ELSE. Thanks.
That's all folks.
