This Is What Happens When A Kid Leaves Traditional Education

"Logan Laplante is a 13 year-old boy who was taken out of the education system to be home schooled instead. . . "

"Education is often considered the foundation for creating a well rounded and productive society, but this belief usually stems from being sure that those coming out of the education system are able to keep the cogs of society turning in order to maintain profit margins of large companies in a system that requires constant growth. Instead of having creative and out-of-the-box-thinking people, the current style of education creates more submissive, obedient and trained graduates so the current system is always maintained.

1. I can't argue with the premise. Without watching the TED talk, I know it's true.

 

formal public education is about conformity and service to the dominant corporate paradigm.

Make no mistake.
