Uniqueness or Uniformity?


Much is made of the uniqueness of snowflakes. Or, the uniqueness of fingerprints. A religious person might say, “When God creates, He has unlimited possibilities and He uses them all.” Even a non-religious person might say, “Nature abhors standardization.”

Forcing children to spend large amounts of time in a common, age-grade institution—one that must prioritize uniformity—violates everything we know about human beings and everything we see in nature.

  1. Interesting. I just read an article about this here: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304017604579445140870078088

  2. How many precious children conform just to survive…and how much does the world lose from their loss of identity? One of the best reasons I know of for home schooling.
