You and Dale have convinced me -- never will I make the remarks I made about
military schools again. I am afraid it wasn't the first time I spoke about
them without enough knowledge.
I do however think that kids in most of today's schools feel that they are
supposed to enjoy it. (I didn't feel that way as a kid either.) And that is
an insidious fault of most progressive schooling, but no more insidious than
the seduction you are talking about in "model" classrooms. I doubt that the
"system" will change very much before cataclysms occur to it.
