in this section of walden he talks about education and what it means to everybody. His main point is that people would benefit if they had to do the work them selves. For example if you were build your own house you would want to make sure that the walls stayed up, because if they fell you would be the only one to blame and you could make sure that you didn't hurt your self. If you were to be able to build a school that you could make the rules at, it would be the perfect school for you, but it. At not be the perfect school for some one else, that because they did not build it. If you could design a school it would probably be the best you can want. Since most people don't get to build a school there is almost never the perfect school for anyone because the school is perfect for the one who would build it. Every school will have something that you don't like. I am finding this at almost every school that I visit during the secondary school application process. Some school it's the location others it is that they don't offer wrestling or Latin. If you want to learn something and not forget it you have to do it with your hand and by your self. He talks about a boy who gets shown how to make a knife and a boy who makes one on his own. If you want to learn something you should be the one to teach your self what to do.
