Grand Island, NE: Vandals Flood a School

Someone broke into Engleman Elementary in Grand Island, Nebraska on Sunday and turned on a 2-inch water line that had been closed. Water ran through the older portion of the building, including the cafeteria and gym, as well as some kindergarten brainwashing centers.

The cost to replace this damage is expected to be over $100,000.

Most people don’t like being told what to do. Any institution that aims to structure and regiment a person’s life is, to a certain extent, in conflict with that person. The interesting thing is that that person is not always in willful conflict with the institution. Those who are obedient and fulfill their role as students understandably try to ignore the negative effects their schooling is having on them. But who would honestly deny that these effects are quite visible?"-Toward the Destruction of Schooling
