Adultism

Adultism is a new fad in education. It’s the idea that treating children as children and not as adults is discrimination.

It obviously is discrimination in the sense that we discern that a child is different from adult. But the new fad is that we should stop discerning. I’ll let you guess who wins from erasing a boundary between children and adults.

  1. What age are those “Deep Dive” Groups aimed at? I think I’d rather use a bathroom full of rattlesnakes and no light than listen to a single one…. especially since cant like “Deep Dive” usually means “We’re gonna lecture at you and you better not make a peep!”

    “who wins from erasing a boundary between children and adults.”

    Adults who want to exploit children, of course. Whether the exploitation is economic or sexual is not something I want to think about…

      I know of jurisdictions in Western nations where the one who chooses not only the head of the education department but who chooses which politician will run in the election is a practicing pedophile.

    The more of your blog I read, the more I think that the big winners are the people who actually get paid to come up with or implement this tripe, since in a fair and decent world, incompetents of that magnitude would be fired on the spot and be employed somewhere more closely matching their ability. Like picking radishes or something.

  4. I’m a fan of Charlotte Mason’s belief that children are born persons but I’m pretty sure that isn’t what they have in mind.
