The need to abolish mandatory schooling
Yes, that's right. I am completely against mandatory schooling, I believe it is very damaging, does favors to no one, and needs to be gotten rid of immediately. Please note: I am not against learning. There is a difference between forced schooling and the enjoyment of learning.
Why should we get rid of it as soon as possible? For several reasons:
1) People, or children, are different by nature. We all have different lifestyles and likes. So why should we be required to attend school, something that does not work for the majority of people, for years, being forced to do pointless work?
2) Additionally, we have lives. God forbid you don't go to school, or do your homework, despite the fact that you had no say in the matter. I find it a constant source of amazement when people wonder why their kids are doing poorly in school... of course they're doing badly, that is to be expected! They don't like it there, which many parents completely ignore.
3) Intelligence and knowledge is diverse. School fits ONE shoe, ONE mold, ONE system, and that's it. And again, god forbid you if you say otherwise.
To say that mandatory schooling in any way represents a free nation or that it represents "strong values" or a "stimulating learning environment" is completely false.
