If your child tells you that a task, topic, class, or school in general is a waste of time, it is. Whether your role is raising or teaching that child, you have to decide what to do next. Whether you agree or not, carefully consider your response. How important is it to sustain the status quo? Are you willing to do whatever it takes to provide that child a meaningful education? What if educating that child stretches you beyond your comfort zone? For the sake of posterity, would you consider that many of the assumptions we collectively hold to be true about institutions of learning, may in fact be misguided?
