I do believe that there are some that can thrive in the school system, but sadly it's not a one size fits all and therin lies the problem. There are also those that thrive in primary school, but things fall apart in high school when the approach to teaching changes and often the school is much bigger. Then there are homeschooled children who have gone to high school and managed fine because they don't have the same concerns with peer pressure and know how to study when they don't understand something.
However, it should always be the choice of the parent ultimately as they know what is best for their child. This is why I don't think school should be forced.
