Fuller On Rankism In Schools, Part 4

December 29, 2013

Excerpted from Somebodies and Nobodies, by Robert W. Fuller:

Our schools are filled with students who opt out of learning rather than risk being stigmatized as “losers”…The reason so many pupils withhold their hearts and minds from what is being taught is that their first priority is to steel themselves against the indignities that beset our educational system from preschool on. The long-term consequences of doing this are often easier to bear than the brutal pain of derision. Society pays a terrible price for sponsoring institutions that force its young to make such tragic choices. Worse still is the fact that our schools merely reflect societal practices which force the same choice on adults.
