Wrestled over this for a long time.
School always sucked.
School will always suck.
Most kids cope. Some don’t make it. Those that don’t make it need to get attention BEFORE they don’t make it. There’s alternatives. People need to pay attention. Homeschooling via Internet will continue to grow as well as self-education while also greater forces to maintain current systems will continue indefinitely.
But at least there is a democratization of education of sorts available in an even greater way than public libraries offered us before the net, so there’s hope.
