I came across these two thought provoking videos today that put into serious question the role of and value of compulsory education. I am not sure I agree with the overall message being put forth here (they smack of conspiracy theories). I do think they shine a light on an issue all schools need to face. I think we need to be talking about the issues raised by these videos and have a serious public discourse about the role of schools, their purpose, and how we can improve them.
What are your thoughts/reactions?
