[image reads]: School is a Prison and damages our kids by Peter Gray from Salon.com
"Children are required to be in school, where their freedom is greatly restricted, far more than most adults would tolerate in their workplaces. In recent decades we’ve been compelling them to spend ever more time in this kind of setting, and there’s strong evidence that this is causing psychological damage to many of them. And as scientists have investigated how children naturally learn, they’ve realized that kids do so most deeply and fully, and with greatest enthusiasm, in conditions that are almost opposite to those of school….
Most people assume that the basic design of today’s schools emerged from scientific evidence about how children learn. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Schools as we know them today are a product of history, not research.
Research has shown that people of all ages learn best when they are self-motivated, pursuing answers to questions that reflect their personal interests and achieving goals that they’ve set for themselves. Under such conditions, learning is usually joyful.
The evidence for all of this is obvious to anyone who’s watched a child grow from infancy to school age. Through their own efforts, children figure out how to walk, run, jump, and climb. They learn from scratch their native language, and with that, they learn to assert their will, argue, amuse, annoy, befriend, charm, and ask questions.
They do all of this before anyone, in any systematic way, tries to teach them anything.
This amazing drive and capacity to learn does not turn itself off when children reach five or six. But we turn it off with our coercive system of schooling.”
Public schooling, at least in America, was started around the time of the Industrial Revolution, and was a preparation for factory work when kids got old enough. That’s why the hours are as long as they are and every public school seems to run on the same shitty system that only provides bare minimum education. It taught basic literacy and work ethics to children who could then grow up and be decent employees. The school system wasn’t designed for learning and teaching, it was designed as job preparation.
I had so much trouble reading this because it takes me back to highschool and elementary school and I found myself staring at the ceiling for twenty minutes trying not to cry.
School killed my urge to learn, read, explore, and whatever self-confidence I had as a blissfully ignorant child.
The worst part of this to me is that these problems -aren’t- unsolvable. They aren’t at all! Other countries have already experimented with alternative forms of teaching for young children and highschoolers with great success! Look at Finland for fuck’s sake!
It’s not an unsolvable issue! People are just too fucking lazy to try and FIX IT.
don’t ask a lot of questions, don’t prove the teacher wrong, don’t deconstruct the oppressive assumptions in the documents, don’t self-educate
This is the most important thing in the entire world.
If All Time Low ever break up I swear to god I will break up as well.
