, the kids who would abuse it rarely learn anything in conventional schools anyway; at least, the ones I can think of . . . besides, kids might be a lot more willing to learn and teach themselves if school stopped being the symbol of all evil in our lives. (And for the ones I know, myself included, it *is*.)
It would take more teachers. But--I think even a program like that with the same number of teachers currently going would be better than the school I'm in now. It wouldn't be ideal, but considering the current situation treats education like a job and a competition . . . how much worse can it get (aside from not having free education)? That was a bad question. It can get a lot worse. ^^;; But it can also get a lot better. . . .
