    Being more constructive, you might look at the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of cooperative, democratically-run (to varying degrees) workplaces throughout the country.
    OK... let's look at them.  How many are in the Fortune 500?  What?  None of them?  Does that give you a hint that these organizational methods don't scale?
    Finally, you are more than welcome to believe that the sole purpose of education is to create and train people to be employees. That's your right, and a lot of people would agree with it. I happen to have a different vision/philosophy.
    Perhaps then you should get a new job or you should raise donations from like minded people to pay your salary, rather than taking it from people who are paying you to teach students what they need to know to get good jobs.

        Why don't you get together with 100,000 like minded people and start a democratically run company to do something big.  Operate railroads, be a telco, or go head to head with Walmart.

        Lets see how it goes.
