Peter Gray on Malala: "My only objection concerning this award—and it is a big one—lies in the Nobel Committee’s statement, “Children must go to school…." Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a world that declared that every child has the right to educational choice?...Millions of children throughout the world are suffering in schools. Some—an increasing number actually—are committing suicide because of what is being done to them in school. But they have no choice. School is compulsory."
