Please enjoy my recent conversation with Brett Veinotte. Herein we discussed his School Sucks Project, demonstrating alternatives to government school, the unwritten lessons of government school, promoting critical thinking, focusing on the positive message, Voluntaryism is a message of peace and love, Brett’s background, viewing government school system from different angles, the Internet is helping the growth of homeschooling/unschooling, how to talk to people about government school, building bridges of communication and more!
Children learn what they live. Put kids in a class and they will live out their lives in an invisible cage, isolated from their chance at community; interrupt kids with bells and horns all the time and they will learn that nothing is important or worth finishing; ridicule them and they will retreat from human association; shame them and they will find a hundred ways to get even. The habits taught in large-scale organizations are deadly.
