Benny & Sid presents Chapter 17 of the serialized graphic novel The Truant Officer featuring the Mysterious Futoko

Why should we leave criticism of public education to those who despise it and the children whom it serves?

The Truant Officer #17
By Glen Bledsoe

(Your City, USA) - Do not misunderstand the meaning of "school non-attendance."

It does not refer to truancy because of laziness or intellectual inability.

We are not delinquents nor are we vandals. The followers of Futoko love learning, believe that learning is the most important human activity.

Futoko is an active critique of learning institutions which have accepted the task of force-feeding education to those who do not want it.

Why should we leave criticism of public education to those who despise it and the children whom it serves?
