scary school nightmare

How did it come about that such a crazy process like schooling would become necessary? Then I realized that it was something like engineering people — that our society doesn’t only produce artifact things, but artifact people. And it doesn’t do that by the content of the curriculum, but by getting them through this ritual which makes them believe that learning happens as a result of being taught. — Ivan Illich, Deschooling Society
