Uniqueness or Uniformity?

Much is made of the uniqueness of snowflakes. Or, the uniqueness of fingerprints. A religious person might say, “When God creates, He has unlimited possibilities and He uses them all.” Even a non-religious person might say, “Nature abhors standardization.”

Forcing children to spend large amounts of time in a common, age-grade institution—one that must prioritize uniformity—violates everything we know about human beings and everything we see in nature.

    How many precious children conform just to survive…and how much does the world lose from their loss of identity? One of the best reasons I know of for home schooling.
