I recently went through a book I picked up in the Children’s room at the Central Library. This story, “The Apple and the Arrow,” by Mary and Conrad Buff, amikacin buy drug, has a plot with many parallels to the state and nature of schooling. It even represents the struggle against traditional schooling. Lowest price for amikacin, As I read the book I noted my analysis. This book is not a novel “of comparable merit” to books on the “Advanced Placement” book list, but it managed to highlight many things that I am currently contemplating.

Thirty-three men on a mountain meadowMany many years ago.“
Although the theme immediately points to the fight against monarchical oppression, I find that these men are much like those advocating for alternative child-led learning, amikacin online.

We come together in various ways to discuss our views and goals, in places that are small like their meadow.

Albrecht the King
A young boy, Amikacin online sale, Walter, who has overheard about the gathering in the prologue, comes home by nightfall after being out with his younger brother, Rudi, amikacin in uk, for most of the day. When his father doesn’t return, Walter asks his mother Hedwig for more information about the other day, amikacin online without prescription. She explains that these men are planning a revolt against Albrecht. Cheap amikacin without prescription, This is the new ruler and son of the former ruler, King Rudolph who came to pass. Rudolph was very passive and didn’t bother their canton (village) much other than to collect yearly taxes and solve disputes by sending a yearly judge. When Albrecht became king, buy discount amikacin online, he decided to tighten reign, setting up tolls for travelers and appointing bailiffs to watch over citizens of various cantons. Amikacin online without prescription, His ultimate desire was to collect bags of gold in any way possible. Drug amikacin, King Albrecht is very symbolic of the government we have today. When it comes to education, money is the ultimate goal. Schools are forced to test in order to get money from the government, cheap amikacin in canada. Those who do poorly, due to lack of resources and funding, Buy amikacin from india, suffer even more because they cannot raise scores enough to get more money. There are barriers on all levels of schooling as a means of collection, amikacin online without prescription. Be it grades, scores, assignments or something else, amikacin buy, students, teachers and parents always release their power to those above them.

Gessler the Bailiff
Gessler is a bailiff appointed to watch over a canton named Altdorf, cheap price amikacin, which is near many of the cantons, including the canton Uri that Walter and his family lives in. Amikacin no prescription, He is “a low-born” commoner and the power has gone to his head. Gessler over time has come to abuse his power, creating ways to collect gold for himself. He took out the eyes of a man’s father, simply because that man’s son fled the village.

There are many “Gesslers” in modern schooling. When you go from the Department of education (more of an Albrecht) down to the teacher, you will find a Gessler. The state controls the boards of education, who control districts, who control schools and their administration. The administration then controls the teachers and students, and the teachers control students as well. Amikacin online without prescription, The students are only left to control one another in any simple way they can, be it bullying, starting rumors, or creating cliques in schools that are already segregated by age or even by gender.

Students have more clubs and opportunities, but it is still under the same system. Low income areas just feel it for what it really is.
