Kozol: "Schools cannot at once both socialize to the values of an oppressor and toil for the liberation of the oppressed."

In my view it makes little sense to talk about deschooling a society without emphasizing the necessity of radically changing more important institutions. Schools didn’t create class hierarchies, privilege, and vastly unequal distributions of wealth and power. And these conditions can’t be abolished by talking about abolishing schools. Schools are one institutional means of reproducing the basic class relationships, privileges, and attitudes characteristic of our society.
To imply that we could abolish schooling, degrees, and the grading and tracking functions and so create a decent unschooled society is wrong. There are wining places and losing places in this society; they have to be filled, and those with power and privilege and wealth will use these resources to keep the winning places for their people. There is a consumer mentality, a waste economy polluting the environment, and this cannot be separated from the corporate profit-hungry basis of the economy.

there is no such thing as race.. but the human race..
scientifically, anthropologically, ..
racism is a social construct.. with some benefits.. ie: can blame things on it..
race can only be defined as a human being

If we don’t have a specific agenda—a list of exactly what we want to change and how—we will be gathering over and over again beside the dead bodies of our murdered children, parents, and neighbors.
