Confused Father – Schools Don’t Teach Democracy

Children don’t get much autonomy with regards to democracy in schools and they don’t get much opportunity to have input as to how the structure operates. They have very little say when it comes to changing things that do not work and yet this process of schooling carries on in a kind of top-down authoritarian style existence.

Yet these children then grow up and we want them to participate in democratic processes even though they have never really explored it.
