UW-Madison’s Michael Apple is quoted in a recent news report from The Guardian headlined, “ ‘School is very oppressive’: why home-schooling is on the rise.” The deck headline explains: “Exams, rules, timetables: do teachers know what’s best for children? Increasing numbers of British parents don’t think so.” Apple tells The Guardian: “Even with evident shortcomings, schools provide a kind of ‘social glue,’ a common cultural reference point in our polyglot, increasingly multicultural society."
