Enough with the paranoia

image “Enough with the paranoia; let's get back to teaching.”  So says YD, in an eye-opening blog post on the state of institutionalized chinuch (ie Jewish schools) today.

Essentially, what he’s saying is that schools should stop micromanaging every sign of badness in children:  kids’ middos (like everybody’s) will develop over time if they’re in the right environment. 

He suggests that schools have lost sight of the ultimate goal – their future.

VERY important stuff.  Don’t take my word for it:  read it, even if you’re homeschooling.  You don’t have to love his musical selections to agree with him on the big stuff!
