We Don't Need No (Public) Education: Sheldon Richman on the Separation of School and State

"Schools, by their very structure, are preparing kids for some sort of authoritarian lifestyle"-Sheldon Richman

Strange how "liberals" are so supportive of public schools, when they are supposed to be against authoritarian structures, isn't it? Well, maybe it's not so strange, considering they love big, centralized government telling a nation of over 300 million people how to live their lives.


  1. Yeah... except without public schools, millions of people won't get any kind of education... which means more conservatives.

  2. Thanks for commenting, Bret. Now if you could just come up with an actual argument.

  3. Clearly the answer is to make education a private commodity and prevent poor people from getting an education, not to reform public education. That will solve everything...

    The idea that schools prevent critical thinking and foster obedience is bullshit. I'm proof enough to disregard the former, and you're certainly proof against the latter.
