    Almost the exact same scenario.

    Not really a choice when your funds are limited and are always expropriated towards public, whether you attend or not.

Teachers themselves offer more creative ways to teach and to allow students to learn by exploring and investigating, rather than direct informational regurgitation. There are lots of choices these days, both in where to go and within the school itself.
    But now your speaking in absolutes.
    These choices exist for some people, in some situations, but if you get the loser end of the lottery of birth, your choices are narrow to zilch.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Irrelevant when demonstrating that your absolute is inacorrect. If the choice is there, even for some, than the choice exists.

    And I have my own version of health care and reject anything else that I see as inadequate.

    This is not an absolute. There are certainly ways to have choices... scholarships, becoming an employee at the school. If one wants it badly enough, it can be attained. There are always choices.

    Sorry to hear that. Your posts were a bit more "aggressive" than usual, tonight. Figured something was up.

    Yea, he had a stroke/blackout/seizure, smacked the hell out of the back of his head on the concrete floor.
    He didn't know who he was after he "normalized" (I'm using that loosely), a bit worried about him, a super guy with a child like heart and a bunch of undeserved responsibility on his shoulders.

    Re: Do Schools Kill Creativity?

    I have an impression of public school teachers similar to pick pockets, cat burglars, street beggars. In addition to stifling their creativity, they offer nothing to keep their students from a life in prison.

    OK, a new rule. If 5 of your students wind up in prison you go join them in prison. You could spend your long sentence teaching them for when they get out. You could maybe begin by teaching them to say, please and thank you. You could do drills. Make it fun!

    I hope he's OK. Hopefully his disorientation was because of smacking his head and nothing more serious.
