Arguing whether we should have thirty children in a class or twenty is the same as arguing whether we should take Aspirin or Ibuprofen to cure our headache. It completely misses the point. It doesn’t even scratch the surface of what’s really important.
Of course, if our headaches persist, we’d start asking why we were creating them. Same with education. You’d hope that seeing generation after generation fail to create a world of peace we’d start asking why.
The education system teaches children that:
-They have to compete.
-They can fail.
So children grow up fighting against life. And the fight within the individuals creates a global society that is unable to create peace. Class sizes make a difference to the experience on a certain level, but right now the conversation should be irrelevant.
It’s not the decor that needs changing, it’s the entire foundations. Don’t get caught up in superficial arguments. Look deeply at what’s been created. If you like it, keep it going. If you don’t, you’ve got a choice to make.
