Communist society considers the social education of the rising generation to be one of the fundamental aspects of the new life. The old family, narrow and petty, where the parents quarrel and are only interested in their own offspring, is not capable of educating the “new person”. The playgrounds, gardens, homes and other amenities where the child will spend the greater part of the day under the supervision of qualified educators will, on the other hand, offer an environment in which the child can grow up a conscious communist who recognises the need for solidarity, comradeship, mutual help and loyalty to the collective.
-- Alexandra Kollontai
Kollontai wrote this passage in 1920, but she foretold our current condition. Her description sounds just like our version of public education.
Folks, The collective at your local school has the same ethos as Kollantai's collective. They are one and the same.
