Education In-Check In John Holts essay Freedom for Children he discusses how children should have their own right to decide how much when and what to learn Holt states that by taking childrens right to learn we are taking a fundamental right away from them He also states that to adults the right to decide what does and does not interest us is taken for granted and that we are unknowingly taking this right away from children Holt also states that by sending children to school six hours a day 180 days a year for about 10 years we are limiting them Holt concludes that children are no longer learning but rather are taught what adults think they should know I personally disagree with Holts on this matter If children had the right to control their education what would stop them from even going or learning things that could be damaging to society I feel the have plenty of rights as it is Children today have many rights already in the field of education In elementary school no one forces them to stop learning They can always choose to further their education by reading perhaps In high school there are a variety of classes a student can choose from All these classes can be selected to fit an individual student Classes ranging from art and drama all the way up to advanced placement physics are at the disposal of those who want to learn No one forces children to take these classes Students take these classes of their own free will Once in college a student has the right to choose whatever major they feel fit to be in If they dont like that major they can always change it What would happen if students were allowed to come and go as they please All too often students would never go to class They would abuse their right and spend their days
