The infantilization of young people continues. Why in the world are they holding baby toys?

We can’t find the old style written content anywhere. Just why is that?

For those who are not aware of the current trends in this area, nowadays institutionalized education is all about The Group. Everything’s about working together en masse, and usually on what are called “projects” or “presentations.” That individualized “life of the mind” thing that we once extolled and idealized is officially dead.
