Education in a modern state run world: equality is a myth

Equality can never exist. We live in a constant state of disequlibrium eg., organic life always changes which ensures equality in the common modern sense is impossible.

However, there is and can be equality of chance, eg., the ability to equally attempt to do what is best for each individual, individually. This I think is what you speak of. In which case yes, it is possible and yes education is essential. However, modern state schools, eg., public education rely solely on the ability to train for the test without teaching or educating based on the individuals abilities as a person. Children cannot and should not be boxed, rather they should be encouraged to think critically and this idea of individual beneficial thought should be embraced and taught. Testing should only be done as a benchmark not as a means to an end. Rather than teaching each individual to simply OBEY arbitrary authority, teach them to question everything using logic and reason in a polite way.

This would disseminate education in a far more beneficial method. Montessori schools do this, which alone is not the answer obviously, as not all children are capable of self motivation. However, each child does have areas in which they both excel and desire to gain knowledge. By approaching education in this manner, each individual can move at their own pace versus being placed according to age in a system that promotes prepackaged information for age groups.

I am a firm believer in education, simply not the education that currently exists within the system in the usa and great britain as well as other first world western nations today.
By dropping standardized testing, educational approaches and teaching; the teachers may instead becomes guides by promoting questions, and using facts or supported theories to respond over the current modern approach of force feeding outdated or even modern mis-interpretations of history and more.

By reducing or completely abolishing standardized approaches children will learn to think, rationally and logically which will ensure an equal beginning for all.

As long as taxes are stolen those stolen monies must be used for this, educators must be paid more than police and legislators as they preform a far greater benefit to society and its future through the shaping or freeing of our youth.

Do we want drones or individuals capable of reason, logic in a polite manner?

If we had this then by default each child would learn that hatred of others based on skills, race or background is pointless as well as counterproductive.

If this approach were taken our future generations would with time becomes greater then their parents in these areas, I for one as a parent of a special needs child and a “normal” child have seen the benefits of the individual approach.

As I constantly remind my children and they me, “We are all our own person, no person is the same as the next.” Rather we are all different with learning being not only possible but probable because they are not locked into a box that discourages free thought and expansion of experimentation and true education.

So yes, I agree that education is the most important method, simply, the education currently utilized ensures only that children do not question arbitrary authority, rather they learn to OBEY without question and learn only what is necessary to test.

Teach by example  (parents responsibility, encouraging logical questions) assist in the pursuit of individual desires and goals utilizing those items and ideas that spark the individual imaginations of our children (teachers responsibility.)

Education IS absolutely essential to the next generation and the goal of equality of chance versus the never to be found unicorn that is overal “equality”.

Always remember, organic items and ideas and life cannot be boxed rather they must be adjusted too, and individually promoted. Hence the reasoning that all children are different due to cultural, economic background, ethnic approaches and even religion or lack thereof.

Teach personal responsibility, taking personal responsibility for all decisions, learning at their own pace, acceptance of others as individuals capable of free thought, rational and logical approaches and the use of manners/polite interaction.

We should not be forced to agree with or accept that which we do not believe, however, we must teach our children that each individual has the freedom (in most of the western world) to not believe  or agree with only that each individual has the responsibility to accept that all humans are in fact their own person.

I hope I wrote this clearly -

Free the mind and the body will follow

        Wrong box on the interface, actually. This comment has no relation to your article.
        Regarding what I think about education, since I am here, is that it is overrated for most people, especially when it involves former schooling, because there is a very modest level of interest and intellect. Furthermore, I think encouraging everyone to have opinions on politics, art, etc. is a bad idea, as they should probably just stick to subjects they’re capable of comprehending. One of the dangerous things present day universal schooling does is mobilize support for the sort of social terrorism and Humanist thought control that grips the modern West, usually by fools who have had their ego and self-esteem inflated by their ability to conform and repeat rote phrases.
        Most people should probably just get a job and confine themselves to satisfaction with their petty lives, they literally can not do better, and telling them they’re all special snowflakes and are going to fly to the moon is simply unrealistic and embittering.
        I think people who are capable of intelligent thought tend to pursue it of their own accord; though there’s no reason parents shouldn’t facilitate this when it happens I don’t really think they can do much to influence beyond providing resources and not being ignorant themselves.

    You did. It’s quite clearly expressed Jesse. And I agree. I’ve thought this for years.
