Education

imagesCAMHY705‘The most beautiful and most profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms.’
Albert Einstein.

‘The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvellous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.’
Albert Einstein

‘If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.’

Able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.’

We are convinced that you mean to do us good by your proposal, and we thank you heartily. But you who are wise must know that different nations have different conceptions of things, and you will therefore not take it amiss if our ideas of this kind of education happen not to be the same as yours. We have had some experience of it. Several of our young people were formerly brought up at the colleges of the northern province. They were instructed in all your sciences; but when they came back to us, they were bad runners, ignorant of every means of living in the woods …
We are, however, none the less obliged by your kind offer, though we decline accepting it; and to show our grateful sense of it, if the gentlemen of Virginia will send us a dozen of their sons, we will take care of their education, instruct them in all, and make men of them.’
Touch the Earth. T C McLuhan

imagesCA92HZOS‘And the people in the houses all go to the university
And they all get put in boxes, little boxes all the same
And there’s doctors and there’s lawyers
And business executives
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same
And they all play on the golf course and drink their martini dry
And they all have pretty children and the children go to school
And the children go to summer camp
And then to the university
And they all get put in boxes, and they all come out the same
And the boys go into business and marry and raise a family
And they all get put in boxes, little boxes all the same’
Little Boxes. Pete Seeger

MODERNISM
Humanitarian removal of
Parental control,
School discipline,
Corporal punishment,
God,
Lowered educational standards.

Now,
Striking teachers,
Rampant crime,
School drugs,
Knives and guns,
Rapes,
Fences,
Security guards,
Psychological problems,
No leaders,
Subservient men,
Rampant women
Out of their depth.

Such role models.
How well we protected our youth.
