Disclaimer This will seem a very odd question to most of you, but it fits the topics of this site and I don't know anywhere else to ask it. In case you are wondering, what follows is perfectly serious. I am not trying to troll you.
I would like to ask if there is a place where a child can be fostered by professional education experts, in a community, family-less institution, with high standards and without second purposes such as pushing a specific religion or a way of life onto them.
Why not an orphanage? Something like an orphanage is a first approximation, but orphanages are usually a last choice for children, in terms of quality. Educators try to do their best with a high share of problematic, traumatized children. Since they do not have parents to answer to, they are not strictly controlled for the quality of their job. They are not the best paedagogy experts the market can offer, but a last resort for children who have no other alternatives. Moreover, orphanages are often run by religious institutes, which have their own beliefs to advance. Think something more like a permanent non-religious boarding school which goes from 0 to 18 years than an orphanage.
Why not a step-family? Step- and foster-parents are also universally seen as a second choice. The child would still grow up in a family-like environment, not with professionals, with all the inefficiencies I perceive in the family model. Foster-parents are not experts in any sense of the meaning, and may feel less emotional attachment to the step-child (especially if they have other children of their own). The child would know that they are in an "inferior" arrangement than their school friends. To sum up, for the child, a step-family has all the cons of a biological family, and less pros.
Why not a commune? Mostly, because of the people. People in communes often have their own peculiar view of life and personal beliefs to advance. The leading principle is "we grow up our children, together, our way"; not "we have professionals grow up our children in the best possible way". If I were to join a commune as a parent, I'd have to take my share of the burden of educating and caring after children, probably in equal shares with the other members, and I don't feel qualified. I could fit a role in which I teach them lectures in my area of expertise, but I don't think I am the right person for taking care of a child 24/7.
Why am I asking this? This is a theoretical question; I have no children and I am not expecting any. But the answer is for my own child, potentially. I do not believe in the traditional family model. I find it inefficient and dangerous for the children: most parents are not well qualified to grow a child, in my opinion, and I am no better than them. I would like to try a more centralized institution, an alternative to the family model in which children grow up as their parent wish. I realize that this may be costly, but raising a child in any other possible way is expensive, too.
Have I read too many science-fiction books? Perhaps. This is completely different from the traditional view of family. But with 6 billion people in the world, I would be surprised if no one ever tried something like this.
So, my question is if such a place/institute exists.
Is there any institution that does this in the world?
I am based in Europe, so a European solution would be most welcome.
I am not trying to discuss the merits of this view with respect to a traditional family; this would be subjective and argumentative and too broad for a Q/A site. I am just looking for pointers.
