The Mis-Education System: Schools Suck On Purpose

“When you control a man’s thinking you do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder.Â He will find his ‘proper place’ and will stay in it.Â You do not need to send him to the back door.Â He will go without being told.Â In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit.Â His education makes it necessary.” – Carter G.

Our friends at Playahata.com reposted this blog by Patrick Grimm of Zionist Watch which first appeared on News From The West.Â Despite the obviously racist and Anti-Semetic views of News From the West, AND the lack of documentation available for the information in this particular post, the article raises some interesting points that are timely in light of Barack Obama’s recent education policy speech.

Our public schools especially are designed to emulate an manufacturing facility, and the schools themselves are factories.Â They use an assembly line process to manufacture docile, unambitious workers who are ready to go straight from secondary school to the plant floor.Â Is there any wonder that in a world where knowledge of technology and science – not to mention creativity and critical thinking – are nearly essential, the United States lags behind?
Read the post below.Â We’ll have discussion afterward, and yes, there will be a quiz.
