After 13+ years of compulsory schooling, we become programmed to operate in a certain way following such a rigid structure. It can be extremely difficult to free our mindsets and open ourselves up to change. This is why so many people change careers in their 30-40’s as they finally come to the realization that what they have been doing their whole lives is not making them happy. Are you a hostage to your beliefs?
“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” ~ George Eliot
“Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, 'It might have been.” ~ John Greenleaf Whittier, Maud Muller - Pamphlet
The government has a Monopoly on schooling, any choice is merely an
Illusion. Schools Are The Problem, NOT The Solution!

Schools are a breeding ground of bad habits
“The formation of habits is education, and education is the formation of habits.” ~

“We first make our habits, and then our habits make us.” ~ John Dryden

And even if it does, you may find that your life has a much greater purpose than what you’re doing at school or after graduation with a degree. As they say, school is a vacuum where everyone is forced to learn the same things at the same times and even at the same age, but that’s not how kids find their purpose in life. Since all kids are uniquely different, they each have their own individuality. Ask yourself whether
Have you asked your kids if THEY actually want to go to school? OR if they would prefer to spend their time more wisely engaging in their own self-directed learning pursuing their passions.
