Cathy, I think maybe you should rethink the idea of military schools being
the "worst end". At military schools things are very clear: you do what you
are told. No one expects you to like it, any more than they expect you to
question it. That allows your mind, heart and soul freedom; you don't have
to waste time wondering why you don't love the nice school you go to if it is
military school; just do it! To me the worst end is the middle -- schools
that control in a manner that tries to make students feel that there is
something wrong with them if they are not interested in, and enjoying, what
the school gives them "for their own good".
