But this article is more focused on describing how the society, in particular older persons, will allow this to happen. It is a very important question. After all, the school is a significant period of our lives and which has largely determined the direction they have taken, whatever, for good and for evil. It is an institution that is part of each of us, is part of our identity. If this is so, and if we want something better for our children, it is not sensible that they obtain more and better classroom instruction? It is what many parents normally think. Even so, there are many who are aware that the school is not in the service of children and young persons; the interests and preferences of these do not have much to do with what is taught in these. That the knowledge and skills necessary to function effectively in the world can acquire by other means.
That many of the characteristics of the school are not appropriate for people and that sometimes cause suffering to them. Many parents hear their children when in the first few weeks they are told that they do not like school. Another issue to consider is that children and young people depend on a high degree of adults in their food, shelter and many other aspects. What so ready are these last to allow these to take autonomous decisions regarding their learning. It should not be easy for the parents have such a profound interference on their children and leave in the hands of these one as important as the education aspect. Finally, to allow students to have control on what they learn is a matter of confidence. As parents is needed to trust that they will make use of the tools available and will acquire the necessary knowledge so that they can develop fully.
