exodus from school – 2014
democratic schools – 2013
1. Democracy means tyranny of the majority.
2. Democracy places insane weight on the importance of self-interest.
3. Self-directed learning needs no vote.
4. Alternative schools are not better than mainstream schools.
..the most insidious thing about democratic school is that it’s just a different way to waste kids’ time. It’s not self-directed learning, it’s not project-based learning—it’s whatever the majority wants the learning to be. It’s forced learning.
