Yesterday went to Alcatraz with the family. It reminded me a lot of the modern high school with Principals (Warden), Teachers (Guards) and, of course, Students (Prisoners). You had PE Class (Recreation Yard), the Cafeteria (Dining Hall) and Detention (The Hole). You had Honor Roll (The Brid Man of Alcatraz, Mickey Cohen, Machine Gun Kelly).
And look at Alcatraz now! A decomposing ruin, an ode to humankind’s basest instincts,a reminder to each of us that the most enduring prison is nothing but Time’s little bitch. The modern high school will suffer the same fate as long as it tries to contain the human heart. Education is Freedom and Freedom is Timeless!
