School is Torture, Supervision Edition

You get it already, but it's worth repeating so I'ma beat that dead horse.

Children need time both unsupervised and supervised. 

1/30th of a supervisor is not enough. You cannot socialize anyone with 1/30th of your attention, and if the "teacher" has any further tasks it's even further diluted. Instead they can only apply extremely crude, and thus extremely strict and de-personalized rules. Concentration camp guard rules. Antisocialization.

Schooling has military-style spirit-breaking built into the very foundations. It has absolutely nothing to do with curiosity or true scholarship.
