How School Hurts Creativity

"In the U.S., a major authoritarian institution would be the school system which processes and standardizes nearly the entire population. The school system is authoritarian because it takes away people’s self-determination and requires blind submission to authority. It is not an exaggeration to say that it criminalizes people that resist its domination. We give the school system a pass here because we are told that it’s in the best interest of children and society and because we are essentially indoctrinated to take it for granted."
