"I argue that "coersive teaching" is the exception, rather than the norm, in school."

The only way that could be remotely true is if ALL schools were a choice that any child could freely choose. Until then, it's a controlled and coersive way of education.

And as far as I know, Peter has never called a teacher evil, or even implied that they are. Teachers are people, ones that happen to be a part of a system. It's the system that's being analyzed and hashed out.

If you can't handle critical thinking and discourse of your own chosen field, perhaps you need to get out of it!
