It’s school time again and the country’s students trudge back to their public and private schools. [*Including charter schools.] The students of America will be mis-educated and under-educated by the powers that be. Students go to classes t learn enforced conformity. John Dewey in 1899 once said,
Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming where everyone is interdependent.”
American education today in which the majority of students graduating from high school are functionally illiterate and ill-prepared for doing anything else than service-based jobs for minimum wage. [*The future working poor.] From the standpoint of the powers that be there are advantages to keeping American students “stupid”; the less intelligent a person is, the more vulnerable he/she is to exterior control.
