This new book by Jessica Mwanzia asks ‘So, what’s wrong with school? 125 reasons not to send your kids..’
She advises to simply dont send them if boys.
She also lists other groups adversely affected by institutional schooling.
A complex gendered environment exists in school, whereby inside the classroom a truncated female value system exists: sit quietly and do your work, certain emotions are allowed with many others seen as a problem.
The increasing disquiet over our education system is building, particularly in relation to its treatment of boys. Are schools simply failing boys and wasting at least 13 years of their lives when they should be enjoying the most carefree time of their lives and being developed into happy adults.
I am happy for parts of this book to be reproduced provided reference is made to the source, Jessica Mwanzia.
