Imagine a place where those limbs get cut off to make sure the human fits the box. That is a rough analogy of a Ukrainian school and what it does to children. Conformity is welcome and essential. Deviation dooms the child to failure in this system.
A whole generation of Ukrainian children, roughly those between 5 and 16 years of age, is growing up in schools that are the opposite of what education stands for in the modern world: the ability to discover your personal talents and succeed in society with them.
As a result, a whole generation of Ukraine’s schoolchildren is being wasted by the decaying and corrupt education system. In the long run, this means that the nation will become less competitive, innovative and less able to find its place in a complicated world. It will lack skills and knowledge. It will remain poor.
