Yeah, and you don't have to go there. It's also laughably inefficient. When
Sudbury kids covered six years of school math in 20 classes, that showed this in
spades. Heck, anyone who has ever taught themselves about anything knows how
clumsy the classroom approach is, except in very special cases. I think you'll
win more converts to the cause by laughing at the factory schools for how stupid
they are than for railing at them for how evil they are. Just a point of
tactics.
