Every Child Should Work

I’m seriously considering printing out this circa 1910 anti-child labor activist leaflet to put up on my kids’ walls as a lesson for how good their life is.

And while I’m thinking about it, this should be distributed to all government officials who mandate standardized testing as a measurement of knowledge gained.

EVERY CHILD SHOULD WORK
BUT THE WORK MUST DEVELOP NOT DEADEN
ENCOURAGE WORK
IF IT TRAINS THE CHILD
TO BE A BETTER CITIZEN
STOP IT 
IF IT MERELY MAKES MONEY
FOR PARENT OR EMPLOYER
WE MUST NOT GRIND THE SEED CORN
