It didn’t occur to me that the six-foot fence around the perimeter was meant to keep me in. That is, until the day I decided to leave.

Fed up with being kicked around the schoolyard, I decided to do what any intelligent human being would do: go home. I soon learned this wasn’t a viable option for a sixth grader.

Looking back, it’s not real clear who was surprised the most by the situation — the school authorities at my assumption that I would actually leave, or me, at the revelation I had no choice in the matter. Apparently there were laws. Huh, who knew?

The view of the playground fence from the jungle gym was never quite the same.

****

Parents strive to prepare their children for school. We teach them to recite the alphabet, to count, and learn their colors. Is that preparation really enough to survive the next twelve years of compulsory education?

In spite of its intended purpose, after you boil away the Friday-night lights, dances, and hook-ups, all you have left is a state-run institution, excreting the same social sludge as its cousin the prison system.

When you stop and think about how similar they are, you have to wonder: is the system designed to ready children for society, or to provide the mental skills for prison life?


Why is everyone always bashing Texas? She makes some good points. The idea is to think outside the box. Not be another flap that just helps keep the box shut.

What did you learn in the locker room shower?

Mandatory gym showers usually begin around 7th grade. The time in human development when boys and girls have no self-awareness or inhibitions — no wait, that’s a toddler.

Can you think of a better way to teach herd behavior than to strip naked an entire class of adolescents and corral them into open shower stalls? Sweat is not the only thing washed down those drains.

However, it is a good way to prepare kids for the other lessons you’ll need for prison life.

Lesson #5. Intimidation and Violence Make You Important.


The school system is a natural breeding ground for a parasitic social order and the playground is the perfect Petri dish to cultivate the dark side of human behavior.

Kids quickly learn to either dominate or stay off the radar. Both are highly useful skills when entering the prison yard.


Refining your social skills...

After mastering the necessary social skills to rise to the top, the leaders hold “the keys to the car.”

Lesson #4 Powerful Cliques Rule.


Schools and prisons alike are artificial environments. Both institutions (however important the reason) hold their inhabitants captive for at least eight hours a day. For children, that’s the majority of their young lives.

It doesn’t take a psychologist, only an observer, to understand that the natural needs of family, along with the companionship and protection it provides, are still a paramount necessity — and nature finds a way. However distorted it becomes.

I've never attended a school with a fence, nor do any schools here have fences around them.

This truly sounds like it's how to rationalize being a good little slave versus prison.

You can add private schools to the list.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

Re: 5 Ways Public Schools Prepare Us For Prison Life
I started using Dian Fossey's writings on ape social behavior to deal with my fellow humans when I was in sixth grade. It worked. I ended up accepted by the cool clique while still staying under the radar. It was pretty funny...

What was really funny is when my guidance counselor started suspecting I was either into or distributing drugs based on my sudden rise in the social ladder, and I told him what I was doing.

He was extremely pissed off, telling me that I couldn't treat humans like apes then threatened to tell the cool clique what I was doing. So I used Dian Fossey's writings on how to deal with ape aggression on him and he stopped.

Re: 5 Ways Public Schools Prepare Us For Prison Life
Numbers 5,4, and 1 make me wonder. And Ive always thought that schools resembled prisons, with being forced to be trapped in a building doing school work all day and god forbid seeing the sun, 7 hours a day, 5 days a week for almost a year every year.
 Quoting: Haelo


Lack of sun can cause a deficiency of Vitamin D...you can take all the suppliments in the world and drink fortified milk but they only provide the PRE-currsor for Vit. D, you must have sun on your skin to produce it....sun screne anyone...

Plus they control the foods...breakfast now as well...like the prisons and the military...government produced foods...

Take a look at your local law enforcement buildings especially newly built and the prisons, then look at the design of you newer schools...the 'decorations'...and look at your new 'boys and girls club' buildings...

stripes created by different colored bricks/blocks...like stripe on the old prison outfits...no longer on the inmate, but now on the building...

Visited Boys and girls club cus my step-son was enrolled...creepy as all get out...run by kids, no safety, the 'guards' stand around the 'yard' and do little to interact with the 'inmates'....unless a fight breaks out...

I have taught afterschool programs, this was nothing close to the program I worked for...it was scary...

BTW, my kids were instructed to sneak away if the school ever tried to herd them on a bus to take them to a second location...otherwise known as an evacuation.

My kids may have thought I was a little out-there back then but when we talk now, I don't look so silly.

Many of the people in these institutions are well meaning and love the kids, if only they realised how they were being used.

bye for now.
