Steli, you are right, paddle have been 99.99% removed from schools.

But what about the teachers mentality ?
What about people`s mentality ?
How about home 'education' where some families still promote wrong education, if not with a paddle, but with other forms of 'educational tools' ?

As you know and say, any kid, once is into classic educational system, is pressured to follow certain style - teachers`s style, school`s style ..

If I`m not wrong, is Mark Twain who said "what a wonderfull human beings we would be and what a beautifull society we will live in if humans childs won`t be limited, since early age, thru education system"

I recently said that, while humans are not equal (nor physically, nor psyhologically), they are still entitled to equal rights and chances.

I strongly belive in your SCS project (and I`ll allways backup) as a strong alternative to actual educational system.

Keep it up, Steli.

Hey Valentin,

thank you so much for all your support buddy!
Here's another Mark Twain classic quote that I really like: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." M.T.

Much power to you!

Dream on!!! This cant never be reality!!
Simply because kids need and want discipline, meaning rules and boundaries.
And how about adults being restricted by law and "normal" behaviour. If everybody started to do what they liked, what a mash we would be in!!!
Dont get me wrong, i dont like abusing in any kind or form, whether it be physical or psychological; but as punishment for behaviour, at least physical punishment can be seen....
