“Schools are artificial…”

"Schools are artificial man-made institutions in contrast to the home, which is a natural setting. There have always been many cultures with no schools, but none without homes. Learning at home, in fact, was the original education system, and school has become the substitute. Until the last century, children didn't usually even begin formal school until age twelve or older."

(Marnie Larsen Ko)
