I wasn't sure whether to put this in blogs or politics. It's not my blog so I guess that's a reason to put it in politics.

It's a bit of an old one, I found it before I joined this Forum and now I've found it back. However, I don't think our schools have changed very much since then.

Interesting, indeed.

RE: Interesting Post

Parents who send their kids to such schools are to blame. Unless homeschooling is outlawed, complaining about schools is not valid. Raise your own kids. If you dont have time because you have to work two or three jobs to make ends meat, organize your coworkers and strike for fair wages. Students can organize civil rebellion in the way of strikes and walkouts. Putting up with bullshit is why America is going down the tubes. If you believe yourself defeated or are too cowardly to confront the powers that keep you down, including your own, then surely nothing will get better.

I think what the author was trying to do was show people why their kids are better off not being in the public schools.

Somebody has to be the 666th one. If it jumped from 665 to 667 then something would be wrong.

I wonder if we can revive the site to the point where organizing a large scale student protest would be feasible.

We're in a time where political extremism is peaking - or already has peaked. I'm afraid in 2 years we'll enter another "cooling" political climate which makes an anti-school revolution much less feasible.

But what about when homeschooling isn't outlawed, but it's not available? Because some families don't have the time, resources, or credentials needed.

Actually, a political cooldown might make it more feasible, as it would be less likely to be overshadowed by the hot arguments.

Let's take a look at history for a second.

In 1968, one of the most successful anti-school protests were organized in Los Angeles, California. In East Los Angeles, Mexican-American students, in unison, walked out of class, in order to protest a number of issues, including the prohibition of the Spanish language, low emphasis on the students' culture, censorship, and derelict school conditions. The walkouts significantly effected the way high schools functioned in the United States, but sadly fell short of the pipe dream student revolution.

Remember that the 1960s were a very tumultuous time in the United States. The civil rights movement, hippies, anti-Vietnam War protests, etc made for a very hot political climate. It was the perfect time to do such a thing.

Look in 2016; anti-establishment politics resulted in the United Kingdom leaving the European Union. I think that a student walkout would generate much more buzz than it would have in 2012 (things were very cool in 2012). Despite this, I expect things to cool off; Daesh will likely weaken, and if the British economy collapses, then the far right movements will die off in Europe (where they've been gaining ground seemingly from Ireland to Poland, from Spain to Norway).

I say we should take a "build slow" network on here; we'll know the time when to execute a powerplay.

RE: Interesting Post

You dont need much time or credentials to raise kids properly. The purpose of my TCS is also to guide parents towards the same end we want kids directes towards. 30 committed minutes a week is not so difficult, so long as you've got a clear idea about what those 30 minutes are about

It's difficult to know. If the British economy still manages to do well, then the far right movements might actually be strengthened.

Time will tell. Like I've said, timing is very much everything here, especially in a school rebellion.

RE: Interesting Post

I have a hard time seeing the ends such a rebellion seeks.

What roles do parents play in this? Or do they play a role?

My TCS is ultimatley a spiritual path which if taken by enough people, would in a few generations simply find class sizes shrinking as more parents figure out how to effectively teach their kids without school.
