But I support progressive education not the traditional school model which i think is only squashing young students individuality natural creativity and curiosity for learning. Traditional school is depriving students from customizing their own learning and giving them control over what and how topics are learned. I feel traditional school (k-12) is just almost like a prison that prepares students to be told what to do all their lives by training them to be an obedient little worker. I mean kids don't decide when they eat they have to ask permission in order to use the bathroom. Very limited options in what they study they have to take gym and electives, it's testing memorization and recitation study main core subjects, and I believe it's basically an indoctrination center to make dissenting freethinkers fit a certain mold. What life is that to only sit at a desk all day and only be around people of same age instead of learning education and knowledge through real world application and studying subjects that interest the individual student, cultivating their talents and passions, and also can be used again in real world. Also I think it's an environment that encourages social exclusion and potential bullying if any child or young adult is different from their peers or doesn't conform in some way. I think progressive schools such as Montessori, not sure about Waldorf schools democratic schools are much better. I support magnet schools, vocational schools, homeschooling, online school where students can learn at self pace, hybrid programs with unschooling there are resource centers and programs for this. I think youth should get apprenticeships, travel groups and shadow work experience and have freedom, autonomy, and independence in how they learn. I believe in real learning not the traditional model that is meant to put worker wage slave mentality and authoritarian control over kids. And something else when children are little there should be no politics or mature ideologies being taught to them allow them to be innocent children not put shove indoctrination. I would not ever recommend a kid going to normal public school or religious private school. My opinion hasn't been formed on charter schools yet.
