That's what the Establishment wants to brainwash people into thinking!
Old man Pearson the english teacher once told us- "Boys, as you go through life, you'll find that when you meet people, their eyes will automatically go down towards your feet. That's because they're judging your character on how well you keep your shoes polished".
After hearing that krap, half of us in the class switched to wearing sneakers for the rest of our lives..
Here's my old school, it was like something out of Gothic horror-
(Incidentally Richard III's body was later found buried under them trees at bottom right after they were bulldozed to make a car park
I hated that school, it was the worst two years of my life! Half the teachers were pervs but we couldn't complain to the headmaster because he was the ringleader!
One kid took a home-made gun to school once, it was rumoured he was going to gun down the history teacher, but he settled instead for shooting out the windows of the hall from the outside on speech day evening after dark.
Other kids used to leave the gas taps on in the science lab at the end of the day in the hope that the school would blow up in the night but it never did, Satan himself must have gone round turning the taps off to protect his beloved school.
We had a school chaplain who used to stride about in his long black cassock glaring at us boys with a face as sour as ****, he must have put thousands of kids off Jesus over the years
Need I remind you all that this thread is about que's inability to prove that public schooling is dumb. I am calling Que out to prove this with some sort of objective evidence. So far, he cannot prove that public schooling makes you dumb or even substantiate the claim of how "dumb" or unintelligent you can be when it comes to being taught at public schools.
Common Core tests laced with corporate slogans: are children being indoctrinated?
All across the state of New York, this year's Common Core English tests have been featuring a host of brand-name products like Barbie, iPod, Mug Root Beer and Life Savers. In addition, for clothing giant Nike, some tests even included the shoe company's well-known slogan, "Just Do It."
According to Fox News and other sources, the brand names appeared on tests that more than 1 million students in grades three through eight were required to take in April, "leading to speculation it was some form of product placement advertising."
State education officials and the publisher of the test say the brand references were not paid product placements but just happened to be included in previously published packages selected for the tests.
But some critics aren't sold on that explanation. They have questioned why specific brand names would have to be mentioned at all.
