because they want to make a world of conformists and lack of innovation
I find that schools aren't even doing a good job of teaching the most basic skills let alone the rest of what people need, in order to get along in this world.
if it's not in 'text speak' will they even pay attention ????
70 years of Critical theory and Marxism with it's post modern belief that rationality and critical thinking is not a path to knowledge.
Exactly what l wonder too.
Well, speak for yourself. Maybe your schools don't, but fortunately Russian schools and unis still do.
...with NCLB...that ALL students will learn...all the focus on "standardized" testing...which all schools are graded with an API...& if it's not high enough...state takes over the school...you are in deep shitaki as a teacher if your scores aren't high enough and "standardized" implies...we fit all students into a "standard"...all similar...no diversity...IT SIMPLY SUCKS...thus, coming soon to your local educational institute is something called the "core standards"....and a new way to test that cultivates critical thinking....you are given a situation...rather than an a, b, c, d choice...I am ever hopeful...being a teacher of 8th grade...this is my 19th year...& the last decade has been brutal....
Even in higher education, you're given an assignment, told to do some research, then answer the essay/report to the criteria you're given. We're never really told to think for ourselves in society.
Schools are more into brainwashing students with liberal propaganda. Like singing songs of praise to Obama. Can't mention God, but can praise all glory to Obama. I pulled my children out, teachers are lazy, dumb, and just concerned over themselves. To call them public servants is a joke. They are grossly over paid, and spoiled.
Teachers have a hard thankless job to be honest. Back in the olden days, some teachers who did try to break the mould by teaching children the theory of evolution, going against the curriculum, were imprisoned by backwards bible belt mentalists. It works both ways.
I hope your children got enough of an education to escape from your ridiculous world view. Would you seriously prefer your children to believe in an imaginary, horribly malevolent 'father' than learn to think for themselves? Please stop breeding.
may be you are right. I even didnt understand what you mean by critical thinking skills. It must be smt wasnt given to me.
