pedagogy and capitalism 

Children aren't a raw material to be formed into a product, and we need to be wary of any form of pedagogy that makes that assumption

Capitalism doesn't start when people turn 18. From the moment you're born, institutions try to turn you into the perfect labor-power product.

We need to be wary about any form of pedagogy or education that focuses MORE on what kind of adults it "creates", than on the children's current health and happiness. ESPECIALLY if the adults it "creates" are characterized by how well they fit into a capitalistic system.
We need to be wary about forms of pedagogy that make the premise that the child is not yet a full human being, and that the purpose of education is to "form" them into one
