[T]he United States has become a nation of institutions, whereas it used to be a nation of communities.

Networks like schools are not communities, just as school training is not education. By preempting fifty percent of the total time of the young, by locking young people up with other young people exactly their own age, by ringing bells to start and stop work, by asking people to think about the same thing at the same time in the same way, by grading people the way we grade vegetables — and in a dozen other vile and stupid ways — network school steal the vitality of communities and replace it with an ugly mechanism. No on survives these places with their humanity intact, not kids, not teachers, not administrators, and not parents.
