From an article in Linkara, about different experiences with learning and teachers.
The American school system is not here to educate us or to encourage us
to learn; it’s here to keep us in line and silent. It’s here to keep us
from deviating and being our own people and forming our own ideas. Don’t
let it win.
There are plenty of amazing teachers who go the extra mile, in public or
private schools, but it’s very sad and pretty mentally dangerous when
teachers like those mentioned above not only refuse to do so but tamp
down creativity in various ways. It sucks :/
