The real problem with public education is the damn No Child Left Behind. I think history will look favorably on George W. Bush, but NCLB and what it spawned, Common Core, have led to kids, parents, and teachers mad and stressed.

It's now all about teaching to the test, especially in high school.

Schools used to divide kids by ability, but that has fallen by the wayside. When I was in grade school in the 60s and 70s, kids were split into slow, medium, and fast. My high school split English, math, and other classes were split into 5 tracks, fundamentals to honors.

Now, it's all about teaching kids to the standard.

When I was a kid, schools bragged about how many kids were above standard and how many high school kids got 3 or better on AP tests. The superintendant always told at high school graduation how much college scholarship money was offered to the class, based on academics.

Compulsory schooling got Cultural Marxism where it is today- together with an atheist or agnostic citizenry. Christians, artists, poets, musicians and philosophers exist, despite the system. And Protestantism was both the forefather of modernism and compulsory schooling (thanks for that historical gem), so it is no surprise that state schooling is now meaningless.

This clip is sad but true. What I myself thought school was at the time…IT WAS FUCKING NOT. The State has worked too well to fuck kids thinking 6hrs a day 5 days a week & it's a bitch to change shit for the better. Do it anyway.
I feel better informed from YouTube than school itself ever could. Too bad the internet didn't exist yet????.

A dissent: When the reigns of power were held only by the aristocracy, the children of the aristocracy were educated so that they could grow up to rule over everyone else. When the population as a whole is given the power to rule themselves without an aristocracy, the children of the entire population must be so educated. One can cast this simple truism as a grand conspiracy to brainwash the youth (there is always room for more measured criticism), but the education of one's children is definitely desired by every responsible parent, and literacy alone is one skill that has provably become much more widespread in the period addressed in this little video screed. It is easy to find fault — no system of universal education will meet everyone's approval all the time. However, as much as it may be tempting to be suspicious of the state taking on this role, there are plenty of entities with agendas much more suspicious who are clamoring to take on such a role for their own benefit. Some of those bad actors make videos like this one.

The only criticism I have is that there does need to be an alternative form of public education, and somehow that will require a kind of institution.

Hear where I live there's control everywhere, even private schools can't scape from it :/. We learn since the very first year left wing ideias and people grow up as idiots, some even get lost and don't even notice it. And our beatiful State doesn't help for private properties because of to much taxation. They create a problem and blame the capitalists under the context of protection while doing it only for power and money. The result of all this: people always expect protectionism of the State to solve their problems, taxes are high, the state itself causes unemployment, people grow up as retarded who overwhelm you is there's something you don't agree on. And it may be scary to know because out their for other countries, people from hear are supposedly happy and friendly. But not, they're not like that :v
Edit: university is compulsory. They make you think it's optional but there's some points:
1. If you want to open a company, taxations are high and there's a billion of regulations
2. Regular jobs give few money, considering bills are high and they create excuses for you to pay more than what you actually use
3. The States obligates every company to only get employees with a degree in some areas like Education.
4. For the regular citizen the greatest payments are with degree
5. The school model is totally built around an anuall main test wich is to go to any public university you want. And the number of approvals on this test are marketing in private school for 3 main degrees:
1. Medicine
2. Laws
3. Engineering
(If there's something wrong with my English pls correct me)

I was apparently born with immunities against conditioning. Luckily I've noticed this from since kindergarten. Always felt like I was being moved around like cattle. And I was right. We're all slaves living on tax farms.

Charlemagne mandated schooling for boys, as did St. Vladimir. But schools were run by monks in those days.

I was blessed to have some more Socratic teachers in my public schools, but they were few and far between. University is now using factory methods to create a Postmodern, Cultural Marxist army from the automata churned out by public school. "Ineresting times", so the old Chinese curse goes…

The separation of church and state makes public education a atheist Institution. Nothing of God could be taught in public school without a lawsuit from atheist. If God said he created man by evolution or the universe by the Big Bang oh, it would not be allowed to be taught in public schools as it would be religion. The only thing that could be taught in public schools is stuff atheist pull out of their butts.

Most of the problems in this video (and alll the related commiseration in the comments) are better explained by problems with authority, rather than teaching or schools. I can agree with almost every sentiment or problem identified in this video, but disagree with the implied blame. One could make an analogous video criticising all the crappy restaurants (there's A Lot of them). But more obviously here, the problem isn't the existence of restaurants over home-cooked meals, or even the system of franchises.

Also, the passage from Pierce is mischaracterized. He's not arguing against schools (he often worked as both a prof and lecturer) or even against proof by authority. He's making the case that authority should not the endpoint of education or learning, but it IS a valuable (perhaps necessary) tool along the way and he wants to describe the pro's and cons.

Douglas Krueger said that if you see the model, which was created around the industrial revolution era. The teacher (foreman) expects you to be on time. Then around noonish the teacher (foreman) let's you take a small break to have a meal. Once you have taken that meal, you return to your classroom (work) for a set amount of hours. This is a repeating cycle…… Are we living a model that is and old industrial revolution way of thinking? Do things need to change to accommodate to our current era? ????

I’m not complaining. School thought me to be rebellious, how to read, How to procrastinate and to socialize with people outside of my own culture 🙂

At 6yr old,my indoctrination to kindergarten ' D ' block, Los Angeles school public prison system, didn't go well for me. Seems I didn't take to unquestioned submission. As always,with Nazi youth, I wasn't liked by The Others. We forget that, to a certainty, on every slave ship, there were slaves shouting "Sit down! ", " Quit making trouble!! " To dissenters. Within everything birthed to existence, there is a kernel of true self. At 68yrs, I am anarchist. I am atheist. I am revolutionary. I am autonomous. I am alone. And I dissent.

So, what did you expect from government-controlled schooling? The government gets what it (or YOU) pay for. Strange, isn't it, that we've been trained to willingly pay for our own enslavement, and to love our servitude? "The state should use its power to indoctrinate its citizens into a certain world-view."
Someone else said this:
“Let the will of the state act, then, instead of that of the individual. Let an institution be created which shall have for its object, to keep correct doctrines before the attention of the people, to reiterate them perpetually, and to teach them to the young; having at the same time, power to prevent contrary doctrines from being taught, advocated, or expressed. Let all possible causes of a change of mind be removed from men’s apprehensions. Let them be kept ignorant, lest they should learn of some reason to think otherwise than they do. Let their passions be enlisted so that they may regard private and unusual opinions with hatred and horror.” “The Fixation of Belief”, Charles Sanders Peirce.

We might bring this video to the attention of those @!#&* on our school boards, or to those running for school boards.

I'm reading a book, The Crowd: A study of the Popular Mind, by Gustave Le Bon. There's a chapter on how public education ruins people in various ways. Page 53 Le Bon quotes a former French minister for Public Instruction, Jules Simon, " ..a ludicrous form of education whose every effort is an act of faith tacitly admitting the infallibility of the Master and whose only results are a belittling of ourselves and a rendering of us impotent."

…and now you have a constant flow of "innovation" in schooling, i.e. constant experimentation with schoolchildren. This is called "progressive" or constructivist education. You wish you were back with traditional education, as the current crop of graduates are total ignoramuses.
