While many people are upset at the way that animals are kept in cages at a zoo for human amusement, far fewer people question our system of schooling that places children in prison-like environments for the convenience of adults.

So much of the mental and physical illnesses that plague modern society are the result of removing children from a natural environment and forcing them to adopt a sedentary way of life where learning is done passively while sitting in a chair.

It is estimated that 57% of American children today will be obese by the age of 35 years. The statistics are similar for other highly domesticated developed countries.

Clearly, something has gone terribly wrong. Can you guess who spends more time outside, a child… or a maximum-security prisoner? Watch this short film to find out.
