From the time we start school, we start to learn about hierarchies and how we fit into them. It starts with us being “one of the many” pains of children that teachers and administrators have to deal with. Next thing you know, we’re nervous when we see them looking at us too long, thinking that we’ve done something that would render a punishment (sometime around middle school I think they switch from our nurturers to our warrens). Then, we’re teenagers and our parents back off a little bit, teachers are still covering their asses by making sure they get us in trouble for small offenses so that they won’t get in trouble. And unnoticeably, the fear we used to have for getting in trouble at school turns into the fear we have for cops and other law-enforcement officials. Especially when we start driving, we constantly check ourselves every time we see a cop on the road, making sure we’re not going more than 5 over the speed limit and whatnot. And that’s how we live our lives.
Thus, the function of schools is to put us in our place.
