Frank McCourt and Education Today

Reading Frank McCourt (“Angela’s Ashes”, “‘Tis”) makes you realize how schools today are mostly hundreds of times better than they were back in the 1930s and 1940s in the old Irish traditional schooling system some people think we should revert to.
If you haven’t read those books, please do so. The absolutely horrible, mindless, sadistic, soul-destroying practices that were considered to be education back in Ireland, during those days, as described by McCourt, are horrifying. The contrast with schooling today couldn’t be starker.
