Good Little Citizens

Great post from Hornberger's Blog:

What the Left and the Right fail to recognize, however, is that the fundamental problem of public (i.e., government) schooling is not so much the indoctrination that inevitably takes place during the 18 years that children are attending.

Instead, the problem is the ultimate goal of government schooling — the molding of each child into a “good, little citizen,” one who will faithfully support the state and never challenge it in fundamental ways. That’s the state’s primary purpose of controlling the educational system in every country.

Here’s what goes on at Chicago Public School dismissals. Maybe the community organizer can come back and bring the army with him. http://www.myfoxchicago.com/dpp/news/metro/video_derrion_albert
