Never Discussed

Roger Schank, Jan 26, 2007

This is exactly right: "I am simply pointing out that school is a place of indoctrination and that points of view that support the standard orthodoxy are never discussed. We readily accept that these points of view, and many others, should never be mentioned in school because no one really sees school as a place where children learn to think for themselves." I agree with Schank's examples, would add that there are numerous additional things that are never discussed, and find myself in wonderment that people who question them are considered radicals.
