Work so bloody hard for what!

For kids that don’t respect or value education.

For a system that is deeply entrenched in ideology and resistant to change.

For wrinkles, grey hair and premature aging.

For nightmares.

For (really) shitty pay.

For never ending administrative crap.

 

For fuck’s sake!

But there is much that I dislike about schools. Schools are compliance-oriented, bureaucratic structures, based around control, stability, and information delivery rather than transformative learning. Schools have more in common with prisons and mental asylums than innovative learning organisations. Schools are designed to conserve and they do their job extraordinarily well.
