Pen Donovan

I want to see the slate wiped clean: The case against school.

Artist Pen Donovan explores the drawbacks of the modern school system - as an autocratic space that ignores the needs (and strengths) of children, and instead creates alienated and isolated subjects for a dehumanized workforce - and explains why the whole system must be torn down and replaced with something caring, and productive, and human.

Pen is author of the book School is Stupid: Notes from the Classroom from Smashwords.
