The Product of Public School sheds light on the environment present within American Public Schools from the perspective of a student. More
The story centers around Calvin Stark, a student at the notorious Columbine High School. He is an athlete first, bully second, cheater third, and lastly a student. The events that take place all have a significant impact on his mental health, and the way in which he views the world.
Teammates, Coaches, Teachers, and other Students play a role in shaping his thoughts and perceptions of the environment in which our children are educated.
Calvin attempts to reconcile the actions of others and rationalize his own actions as they relate to the students around him and their respective well being. He is filled with angst for the system that controls his life, while he is simultaneously burdened with despair as a result of his victimization and his predatory actions towards his fellow classmates.
One would think that after the wave of terrible events that has plagued public schools over the past two decades that the educational system would have taken some fucking notice and attempted to change things for the benefit of the future students. But the Product of Public School was written by a student, for the students, to illuminate the terrible qualities of individuals responsible for the well being of thousands students over the course of their careers, and the damage and pain they continually inflict with no regard for the individual's long term education and mental health.
