Does it take a village?

Posted on: November 2, 2016

I question the saying that it takes a village to raise a child.

I know what it means, but today’s village also has its idiots and perverts. A few of them even become village chiefs or run for president.
 

 
That said, it does take a village to educate one child, particularly if we redefine the village. Today we are talking about the global village. Some teachers and parents worry that this village has more bad people in it. They conveniently forget that it also has a lot of good ones too.

It might take a village to educate a child. It only takes a school to reduce one into submission. To raise a child who is a creative and critical contributor, we need to kids to know and experience their village well, idiots and all.

“It only takes a school to reduce one into submission” – poignant words.
