QOTD: Paulo Freire and False Charity

“True generosity consists precisley in fighting to destroy the causes which nourish false charity.”

                                                           — Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed

This quote is for the folks who both: 

a) send their children to schools that provide small classroom settings, individualized attention, a plethora of academic, athletic and  social activities, and 

b) at the same time, push for public school students to follow a strict and mind numbing standardized testing agenda, at the expense of the more engaging, stiimulating and sometimes beneficial activities they insist their children receive.
