50 Rules Kids Won't Learn in School

Weary Parent offers a quick take on 50 Rules Kids Won't Learn in School: Real-World Antidotes to Feel-Good Education.

Here are some of the rules they highlighted.

2. The real world won’t cares as much as your school does about your self-esteem. It’ll expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.

19. It’s not your parents’ fault. If you screw up, you are responsible.

22. You are not a victim. So stop whining.

47. You are not perfect, and you don’t have to be.

It looks like an interesting book appropriately summarizing why the bromides of communist-thinking educators are failures for helping children once they are outside of a government controlled environment.
