“Going to school is the way to success” is a popular old belief. The story is not the same again. Schools now kill some psychological developments of the child. But the basic reason why people won’t agree that these conventional schools are killing children’s psychological developments is that they think that the school design is an outcome of scientific researches of how a child can learn best Unknowing to them, that is the most untruthful fact about school.
Schools have turned to prisons where we lock children from morning till evening. They are then forced to stay in this type of place that has been scientifically proven to have damaged the psychological developments of many. School is now more interested in teaching pupils to pass exam rather than teaching them to know and these competition has been affecting the child’s psychological developments.
