I know this sounds drenched in cynical nihilistic fervour, but schools are basically mercantile instruction factories where children are brainwashed into learning skills in the capitalist Judea-Christian merchant society's employment categories. Those who rise to the top and graduate go to college are either privileged and are wealthy already through inheritance and familial support, or will move into highpaid careers. The losers do the menial laborious work with low wages, or worse, get into crime, go to prison, become homeless addicts, die, get murdered, get put in an asylum. The lucky losers drop out or attain nirvana. I should know, I am the product of Western education, a fucked-up cynical loser who can only communicate with children to find joy and common ground, because most adults have forgotten about how to graduate in the school of life.
