Individuality or Conformity

“In a society which claims to value individuality we have come to place so high a premium upon conformity in children that any deviant from “norm” is promptly pounced upon as maladjusted. … The child who feels, talks, thinks and behaves like all the rest is “doing fine.” Like the chameleon, he has learned to camouflage his identity to keep out of trouble. He presents no problem to the teacher.”
Sam Levenson in Everything but Money, p. 204.
