A classic from John Taylor Gatto

....his 1990 acceptance speech from the New York City Teacher of the Year Award. He had a bit of chutzpah in pointing out to the educational establishment his belief that the schools exist to do anything but educate.

And, I think he's right. As I work to train my children in character, I warn them that the quickest way to become a slave is to develop laziness and covetousness, the precise things that the government schools relentlessly inculcate in children.
