So what are you preparing 50 million children for? To be sleeping in until 2PM, maybe finally choosing to do an hour of work at 4PM? To your point, school is this way because the types of jobs *most kids are expected to get*… is this way. Much as my daughter balks about waking up for school, **she wants to be a doctor or nurse**, well… most of the time, they're already in the hospitals at dawn. And yeah, she could work overnights, but what a surprise — most of the veterans leave those graveyard shifts to the rookies.

The system aims to mold, not inspire. Obedience over creativity, control over freedom. Early hours and confinement breed compliance, not brilliance. Creatures of habit and dread, not passion. Indoctrination proceeds apace under the guise of education. Questioning minds pose issues, better to demand blind progress. The ideal student is depleted and docile, ripe for the demands of industry. Only the system benefits from its design. Pupils suffer under the tyranny of low ambitions. Depression and fatigue ensure few dare demand better. Resistance is crushed, as intended. Flaws are virtues. The school system thrives by breaking hearts and minds. Purpose achieved.

Obviously. The goal of the current school system is producing people who are smart enough to do a job, and follow orders, and dumb enough not to not question the status quo.

Our school system is based on the democratic principle that only an educated citizenry can consent. It is designed to produce critical thinking citizens, capable of making informed decisions about their government. Not unpopular, simply false.

I would love to go into this, but it says no politics, so.... let's just say the powers that be like keeping the public as dumb as possible.That way, the bulk of us will destroy ourselves, and they won't be held liable.
