What schools don’t do
what schools really do
|To be able to think what to communicate||impart literacy – ability to read and write|
|making sense of data||data and information|
|To apply facts in real world||memorization of facts|
|To give self opinion||to take orders and act on them|
Schools job was only to make people literate. In the sense, that they could learn how to read and write. Schools played a fantastic role, in that arena. But now they are absolutely irrelevant.
50 years ago, very few people were educated and knew how to read and write. Today, mothers teach children how to read and write, even before they go to school.
Then why do we need school?
