"Stop deforming kids for factory/office/junk peddling/marketing slave work.
Only important goals of education:
1. Teach children through example how to communicate in humane, emphatic way. Marshall Rosenberg comes to mind.
2. Hone their true critical thinking skills not what "employers" expect.
3. Tease and tickle their natural curiosity.
4. No homework, more socializing and free time, radically cut redundant amounts of information they could easily find on internet when time comes."
