I want my children to see the changing sun throughout the day.
When I was school-aged, I remember vacation days, summer days and days when I stayed home sick and I enjoyed the late morning sun. I really liked the sunlight at that time of day, and I still do. I remember thinking that I never really noticed the sun, and there were days in the autumn and winter when I hardly saw sun at all. I want my children to enjoy the sun.
I want to my children to be free.
Schools today are like prisons! You're locked into the building. You're locked into the classroom and you're metaphorically locked into your desk! You only see the same people day in and day out. You're sometimes treated like a prisoner and the staff are sometimes like wardens. You're guilty until proven innocent. You're heavily monitored at all times and can't even go to the bathroom without an interrogation. With all these rules and regulations, there's still an air of anarchy among the youth.
Now, I'm not really blaming the school system. They have to be super-secure and act this way because of so many troubled youths. Too many parents aren't being parents. Too my children are raising themselves or each other. Schools just aren't what they used to be anymore.
