In Which Education Has Become Slavery

Every once in a while, I read an article that I feel the overwhelming urge to share with the world. This morning, thanks to a friend, I found one.

I urge you all to read the following:

A 13-Year-Old’s Slavery Analogy Raises Some Uncomfortable Truths in School

I do not know this girl, but I am proud of her and hope that we can continue to raise such intelligent children. The insight described in this article is profound, and exhibits high levels comprehension and critical thinking; many adults I know are incapable of this.

The fact of the matter is that, while there are many fantastic teachers, in some ways we are still living in a bygone age. The fact that this child would be forced to withdraw from school because she wanted to learn is horrendous and beyond comprehension.

I would love to know what the school’s logic behind this was. I’m sure the official answer from the school is that this was not an official action – however when officials act, the actions become official. Like it or not, the educational staff at an educational facility cannot be considered unofficial by anyone’s definition.

Please read this – in light of all we have been through we cannot allow a few misguided people return us to the stone age. After all, do you want your children being taught  the same message as this girl?

  1. Good for that girl! Frederick Douglas was a fine Republican and there is much to be learned from his life.

    We need to empower students and their families with the freedom of choice in their education. That young lady challenged the status quo which is dangerous to do. Teachers unions and the Democrat Party do not want competition to educate America’s poor, less the poor become self reliant and experience the liberty obtained through personal responsibility.
