A Destructive Framework

Question: Schools as we know them divide the day into lessons, breaks, homework, questions, answers, and so forth. Is this how they should be?


Answer: This type of education began only at the time of the industrial revolution, when workers were required to perform tasks on assembly lines. The purpose of education then was to qualify illiterate people to become factory workers. For this reason, the framework and the curriculum were set up to match the needs of the industry.

But today’s children hate it because it runs against human nature. This system doesn’t develop people, it destroys them.
