> yeah you can teach the children about the virtues of trump and putin and how amazing white supremacists are. Even more important, you can mentally rape them with your christiano fascist propaganda from the craddle.
vs. point out to them where the curriculum veers off into popular
misconceptions and/or propaganda messaging, and provide access to
supplemental information where and as indicated.
"Brick and mortar" school teaches three lessons of great importance:
1) Show up on time every day whether you want to or not.
2) Do your assigned tasks as directed whether you want to or not.
3) The people in charge always have all the final answers.
Any other lessons learned present as added value for the economic and
political actors who will exploit obedience trained public school
inmates for the rest of their lives.
The process of sorting future winners and losers includes giving higher
quality instruction to the more obedient kids, while treating the less
obedient as stupid and providing them with a "for losers" curriculum.
More recently, drugging noncompliant students has joined the mix of
strategies for shaping and limiting the social and political impact of
"disruptive" personalities in tomorrow's crop of adults.
"But what about socialization?" What indeed - see above for the kind of
socialization public schools provide. It took 40 years to build a
climate of fear sufficient to support literally outlawing normal,
organic socialization, i.e. letting your kids run around with the
neighbor kids. As a result, public school and broadcast media get the
final say as formative social influences on the peer relationships of
tomorrow's adult consumers - except where parents remove public school
from the mix and work to replace it with "real world" social development
