Why We Need School

Anyone who plans on sending a child to school or who is engaged in the process of schooling a child should read Ivan Illich's essay Deschooling Society. Of course, only the well-educated will read this essay and will agree with many or most of its arguments. What's more, they will vaccinate their children from the detrimental effects of schooling before sending them by teaching them to respect their own opinions over that of school authority, etc. It is highly unlikely that the people who would benefit the most from reading this essay will be presented with its text.
