Casanova Frankenbutt
School is an institution for drilling children in cultural orientation. American classrooms, like educational institutions anywhere, express the values, preoccupations,and fears found in the culture as a whole. School has no choice; it must train the children to fit the culture as it is. Since education is always against some things and for others, it bears the burden of the cultural obsessions. It thus comes about that most educational systems are imbued with anxiety and hostility, that they are against as many things as they are for. The function of education has never been to free the mind and the spirit of man, but to bind them… acquiescence, not originality. Schools are the central conserving force of the culture.
