Recommended: The School Sucks Project

Another great project to come out of the Tragedy & Hope community is The School Sucks Project, which has its own podcast that you can listen to here. While other outlets focus on things that seem far away or out of one's control, what your children (and you, for that matter) deal with when it comes to the schooling system of your community (wherever that is) is both right at hand and well within your capacities to handle. Nonetheless, a lot of our problems arise out of a paradigm for transforming children into adults that arose in the wake of the Napoleonic Wars of the early 19th century. The Project addresses these problems, and seeks out solutions for various folks from how to make the system not fuck over your child to ditching out entirely and homeschooling or unschooling instead.

Yes, they have a YouTube channel. Below is a sample, uploaded on Monday of this week--the 7th of October--and gives you some idea as to the fundamental issue that the project deals with.
