Posted on 08/05/2012 5:15:33 PM PDT by Mackaywarrior
Educational reform is a major issue in America. Not only are many schools going bankrupt but schools around the nation are failing to prepare Generation Y, leaving them helpless and dependent on the government. It has become apparent that radical changes must be made to Americas educational institutes in order to help the future of America. But while politicians and concerned parents attack the walls of Academia by trying to pass legislation in hopes to change the structure of the crowning kingdom liberals have created, what are the students to do? Students are on the inside of the walls and can force Academia, the powerful web between liberalism and the teacher's union, into fighting a two fronted war. The only way for change to happen in education is by awakened students joining the fight against Academia.
One way students can fight Academia is by questioning the answers. Some teachers are teaching from lesson plans provided by outside sources with their own hidden agendas. Students must question ideas that are opinionated and force the teachers to defend their statements. However, it is not enough to just question the answers, students must pose a counter example otherwise fellow students will not see the new side. A perfect example is when a teacher says Zero percent population growth will stabilize the economy, a great follow up question would be How does that make sense when our current economic recession started when people stopped buying houses. Without more people the housing market will collapse. Many times the teacher will ignore the counter example but just by posing a counter to the norm of Academia then more students will start asking questions.
Another great way for students to fight this new front is to lead fellow students out of Academia's Bubble. Schools can only teach so much during the school year (which is growing smaller as the Teacher's Union gains more power) so it is the duty of students to learn knowledge about what the schools will not teach them. Academia only wants to teach their side so students can grow up to fight for liberal causes (In a previous article, The New Counter-Culture, I explain that schools helped create the Occupy Movement). The only way to stop Academia is by encouraging students to research other things that may interest them. If a student ever stumbles upon something interesting and asks themselves Why did I never learn this in school? chances are that Academia does not want the information getting to the masses. A perfect example of knowledge Academia fears is The Battle of Athens, Tennessee in 1946 (Ill leave you to learn more about this patriotic event.)
There are hundreds of ways students can fight Academia. Do not be disillusioned; between Peer-pressure and the fear of a teacher flunking students for having opposing views, this will not be an easy fight. However, when a student stands up for what they believe in then others with similar ideas will stand behind them. What students need to do is burn the buildings of Academia from the inside to draw attention from the walls. Only then will Academia finally fall and education in America can be returned to its former glory.
what are the students to do?
Do like everyone that gets an education avail themselves of the library and the internet and learn. No amount of education system and professional teachers can give you an education.
The Prussian structure—one grade classroom-— of our public schools is for mass indoctrination and for equal outcome. Pulls down and bores the brilliant and makes them hate “learning” because they associate it with boredom-—trapped in a situation where they are forced to listen to stuff they already mastered.
The bottom of the class is conditioned into thinking they’re dumb and the average learners get big “holes” in their education, so their foundation is shakey-—because everyone gets distracted-—and you can’t monitor it closely. It is a horrible system and has to be scrapped.
It is also a great system for conditioning (BF SKINNER) for humiliation (by peers laughing) which conditions the children to “think” properly-—the Marxists teachers control what ideas are acceptable and set the situation up. Nothing is more efficient at behavior modification than using peer pressure and that is why the Prussian system is so great for brainwashing. (John t. Gato)
We need to go back to one room school houses with few students—or better yet-—do what Lincoln and brilliant people like him did-—self-educate. Read.
Skip the brainwashing centers.
But read the Classics and original works of the great minds in Western Civilization and the Bible and avoid the Postmodernists until you have a firm handle on Reason and Logic and Adam Smith and F Hayek. Then Marx and the rest seem sooooooo dumb.
