Post Modern Education...?

Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.George Washington CarverEducation is the anti-democrat. The real key to freedom of mind, freedom of thought, a free mind cannot be imprisoned by bars. Though many higher educators (collage professors) prefer to spout the Ideological thought process and grade students based upon the students agreement with the professor. English teachers have graded students based on their political beliefs not their command of the English language. Say "bush be bad." and you get an A.Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think - rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.Bill BeattieThe goal of education should be to teach people how to question, how to think, not what to question or what to think. I spent a few days trying to disprove; angle A + angle B + angle C = 180 degrees; I am none the worse for it and much the better; my teacher encouraged me to try. Students of good teachers have found errors in the mathematics of several great men over the years, Newton, Einstein, Da Vinci, and several others, it is the challenge of authoritative thought that brings about new research.2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.AristotleToo often we give children answers to remember rather than problems to solveRoger Lewin“We have now educated ourselves into a state of complete imbecility.”Malcolm MuggeridgeWe must differentiate between the post modern education and the truth. Schools have so much to teach with subjects like sex education, self esteem, group psychology, and proper ways to protect a cucumber from std's; that they no longer have time for reading, comprehension, mathematics (including how to count change), real science, true history, civics, or government.We are students of words: we are shut up in schools, and colleges, and recitation-rooms, for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bag of wind, a memory of words, and do not know a thing.Ralph Waldo EmersonOur public schools no longer teach though, but how to recite what the teacher has said, it does not mater if it is correct or not, as long as it is what the teacher believes is true. To teach though we must let the student work out their own problems, in their own way. It might be around five sides of a box but we can only guide them in the decision making process."Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."Ronald Reagan1Timothy 1:7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.The liberal school boards, and teachers unions, board certification for new teachers ensures that only those with the proper line of thought are allowed to train our children. Including states like California that are trying to outlaw home schooling. They do not know how to have an independent thought and are fully unqualified to teach our children.The modern world belongs to the half-educated, a rather difficult class, because they do not realize how little they know.William R. IngePost modern French philosophers have deconstructed truth and morals in to abstract ideas, not absolute values. Truth is now what you want to believe not what is real and my "truth" is as valid as yours. Try that in a real math class 4+4= somewhere around 7.365 to 8.635, on an average of course. Morals is what you believe is right and proper, if you do not like those tomorrow you can change them if you want to.To educate a man in mind, and not in morals, is to educate a menace to society.Theodore RooseveltWe have allowed the minority to remove God from our schools and teen pregnancy rates, teen crime rates, gang membership has risen. School shootings and drug use all go up. We have let the tyranny of the minority to oppress the majority. That is not the way it should be.Psalm 119:98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they [are] ever with me. 99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies [are] my meditation. 100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.And finally I finish with some additional quotes about education for your consideration and meditation.Did you know America ranks the lowest in education but the highest in drug use? It's nice to be number one, but we can fix that. All we need to do is start the war on education. If it's anywhere near as successful as our war on drugs, in no time we'll all be hooked on phonics.Leighann LordEzekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people [the difference] between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.Mark TwainPsalm 119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.My parents told me, "Finish your dinner. People in China and India are starving." I tell my daughters, "Finish your homework. People in India and China are starving for your job."Thomas L. FriedmanMay God bless youJust my thoughts for today.

  • Warren county Ga schools lost accreditation because of the school board. Academics was not a factor, the teachers are not a problem School administrators were not causing the problem and neither are the parents. It is strictly the School board, refusing to follow rules of order, a standard of ethics, and micromanaging classrooms. Search for news for “Warren County Schools Accreditation“

    Teachers are the one group that I do not blame, it is the school boards that hire the teachers that I blame.
  • We have got to break up the NEA monopoly.
