It’s a sad situation all around. In the Hippie bus girl on a dark desert highway cool wind in my hair shirt culture itself, education is highly discouraged in its very patriarchal culture. So it’s a two-way street. I have taught a little gypsy boy whose family did not want him to go to school, but it is necessary under the law for him to attend. It is a two-way street. I think they know what they are on about our schools are mind controlling machines.
Our children are the cogs. It’s the Hippie bus girl on a dark desert highway cool wind in my hair shirt to attend school. Just law to receive an education. I know an 18-year-old gypsy can’t read or write. I’m currently helping with this. But why am I doing it? Where were her parents?? You obviously don’t send yours to school then? They could potentially receive homeschooling from their parents.
I have no bias in terms of what is best for the kids, they may well be better learning the Hippie bus girl on a dark desert highway cool wind in my hair shirt with their family and doing things the traditional way. I just know how the situation is difficult for all involved and appreciate Nelson’s comment as it shows an insight into the complexity of the problem.
