Conformity and the Real World


Here is a very good article on why we are so determined to home school - as posted by a friend on Facebook.
It can be a little more .... 'strongly worded' than I like - many children do well in school and actually love it - some even need to be at school - it is their only view of a more 'normal' world - but for us personally, it spoke to me on many levels!

Especially this bit...

"The system is producing alright, but what it is producing is an obedient army of efficiently conformed adults, who have accepted an artificial reality and are trained to stay on a conveyor belt for fear of some abstract idea of ‘failure’"
