    The schools we go to are the reflections of the society that created them. Nobody is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them. Nobody is going to teach you your true history, teach you your true heroes, if they know that that knowledge will help set you free. Schools in amerika are interested in brainwashing people with amerikanism, giving them a little bit of education, and training them in skills needed to fill the positions the capitalist system requires. As long as we expect amerika’s schools to educate us, we will remain ignorant.

      it would be nice to see a picture of Assata Shakur with this post instead of Angela Davis.

      How are you seeing a picture with this post at all? I didn't include one! An internet miracle!

      The basic problem with this point of view is assuming that the "school" is there to teach "us". The school is in place to allow and enable us as students to exercise our abilities of original thought and develop these ideas to shape our future.

      Freeing yourself from the system is as simple as taking advantage of what education offers rather than idly allowing it to take advantage of you.
