in response to the original question....

So my poll question is, are schools just fascist indoctrination camps in which children are taught to give up their rights, accept punishment for originality, and learn to never question authority no matter how wrong that authority is?

it depends on the school, and the teachers in the school. i went to a great high school, with great teachers, who constantly rewarded you for originality (the majority of them anyway). my composition in stage band was a guitar/drum 'n' bass instrumental, and the majority of my presentations were on censorship and free speech (taking the view of opposing censorship of any kind). every school has good and sh*t teachers, gotta take the good with the bad. also, i find now in university, you are f*cked without originality... a C at best. i've learnt the hard way.

and rogueleader - what kind of f*cking school do yo go to? 6 am to 4 pm? jesus christ, i'd drop out and work at the local planing mill... mine was 8:30 to 3:00....
Aldous Huxley said that an intellectual was a person who had discovered something more interesting than sex. A civilized man, it might be said, is someone who has discovered something more satisfying than combat.
