Why not lower the school leaving age to 14?
What to do with young people who don't want to go to school? Let them go to work, says one former headmaster, in an article that will arouse teachers' wrath.

Actually, the fellow has a point. Why should 14 and 15 year olds be compelled to attend an institution that they loath? They take out their anger on those around them, which means that nobody learns anything.

Surely it would make more sense for these people to drop out of school, if they have found work?

It won't happen, of course, because far too many middle class types have their snouts in the educational trough. Thjey have to justify their positions by claiming that it is all for the good of the kids. Actually, it is all for the good of the teachers and penpushers.

The smug, fat-assed bureaucracy has to be broken up, definitely: first task of the Revolution, AFAIC (after disarming the pigs, of course).

But really: in a socialist society, education would be hands-on in ways which wouldn't alienate these youth. It'd be downright interesting and inspiring. Right now, the main consideration in the capitalist "educational" system is both indoctrination and keeping them off the streets as long as possible. Some goal to aim for, huh?

So piss on this fucking system and the parasites which do good by it... I really hope the high-school kids rebel right alongside the university students, when they take to the streets and usher in the Revolution. In fact, I'm counting on it.
