Progressive Farmer Magazine…

… has a feature on the last page each month called “Cornerstones.” This month it is titled “School.” It is a list of interesting quotes. This month had the most poignant quote I’ve ever read there:

“The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.”
– Abraham Lincoln

We have an environment where we are told every move to make, are beholden to an all-powerful authority and are treated as an average of the whole, which dumbs down the exceptional and caters to the ones who need a little boost.

Publically funded compulsory education has given us a publically funded compulsory world. Its mediocrity will be its downfall.
