Another call to close government schools

My father sent me a link to Salt on the Ruins. The author L. Neil Smith is calling for government schools to be closed.

To give you a sample, here is one paragraph:

The only phenomenon more astonishing than that is the way the public school system manages to kick, stomp, and crush a child's inherent curiosity and love of learning, often destroying it altogether by the third or fourth grade. Yes, children are learning machines. The fact that government schools have managed to condition them against learning is an astonishing—if wholly negative—feat, achieved at the unspeakable cost of countless hundreds of billions of dollars.
