Play is a child’s work

After reading a short history of education, the more I loathe the idea of succumbing to “coercive education” where a child’s innate drive to play and explore are discouraged.

Only to trade off for outdated virtues such as obedience, conformity, ability to work long hours, not to question authority, and to be accustomed to grades and subsequently, linear performance indicators.

Please God guide our decisions when Nat turns 5+.

Perhaps we will enjoy friends and fun at school while knowing we can skip out anytime we feel a risk of his fire being put out.

Perhaps we will montessori all the way if we are given permission not to enroll in national education.
