In the reading titled "Great Men and Women from The Night is Dark and I Am Far From Home" it says 'school is in business to produce reliable people, manageable people, unprovocative people: people who can be relied upon to make correct decisions, or else to nominate and to elect those who will make decisions for them." This made me tahink that we as teachers are just a breading machine of minds that is to replicate the kind of people we already have. I think that we should challenge the standards that exist today not to reproduce them. I think that we should educate our students to make their own choices by being well educated, not educated to make decisions that we want them to make or that others want them to make. What do you think?
