But we are in the midst of the era of digital evolution. We are in an age where you can throw most children with a laptop with a Internet connection into a corner and they learn themselves, based on the Montessori principle. The compulsory education law is not in the best interest of the children but that of society. Our kids have to be productive, they have to serve,be submissive and pious.
I remember well the day I delivered my youngest for her first school day. At that time I was not so aware of the questions of life and politics, but when I saw her sitting at her table on that little chair with arms crossed around each other, I knew I was making a big mistake. In retrospect, I compare this with the worst form of child abuse. I have taken away her freedom, forced her and pushed her a life down her throat that she may not have wanted at all. Who will say? She herself says to be happy. I wonder on what basis she thinks this.
Should the compulsory education law be completely abolished? No, that is too radical, but in the current form it is obsolete. A prosperous country as the Netherlands with a enormous social control does not need such strict rules.
Rules are rules. The rules apply to everyone. If there are no rules for it then they are hysterically cobbled together, think of drones, stints, segways, hoverboards. There are rules for manufacturing of socks even the eggs of chickens have to meet certain sizes.
We have completely gone mad, we have forgotten why we want rules. Actually, there should be rules for making rules ... ... sigh
