Let’s shut our kids up and stop them thinking for themselves. Let’s mass produce them to think what we want them to think and regurgitate it on demand and call it qualification. Lets disregard their need to express themselves in physical, creative, original and independent ways and tell them that they need to do what they’re told. And let’s disrespect them so severely we can make them believe that they have nothing of worth to offer and the only thing of value to know is what we tell them to know. Let’s make them all the same, think the same, dress the same, mould them towards the same outcomes, like products on a conveyor belt, even though they’re all different. And lets keep them stuck inside an institution that bears no relation to the social, cultural and working practises of the real world whilst we do it And let’s tell them they’re wrong to question it even though they may be right.
Oh – I forgot – we already do. It’s called schooling. And it’s about to get worse.
Professors, parents, teachers all say that an over prescriptive curriculum is ruining education. And what does Gove do? He makes it even more prescriptive, completely disregarding those who know about it when he doesn’t.
Can you tell I’m a bit steamed up by this idiot and his ideas? He’s prescribing what kids should learn and he fails learn himself; learn from all those who know better than him because they work in the field.
It is beyond belief. It is beyond any more words. It makes me ask; is there no hope for our kids’ education?
Well, only through home educating!
