School harms kids

wow! i wish i could have been this subversive when i was in highschool.

Aaron Swartz writes, "School harms kids! You may not believe it at first, but it's true. In America, we have a mandatory public school system that destroys children's minds and molds them into slaves of the establishment." in his schoolyard subversion blog and he's only in 9th grade!

i have to agree with aaron. i hated the left-brained method of teaching i experienced in school. subjects seems disconnected, collaboration was contrived and testing didn't show how well a student understood a subject, it only demonstrated how well they memorized facts. IMHO, education is a holistic experience.
