Americans warned, 'Get off of Facebook, turn off the TV, and educate yourself'
Public education in America today is almost the opposite of education, according to an education expert who calls the nation’s schooling “indoctrination.”
“This isn’t some kind of huge national accident that all these legions of Ph.D experts and all these legions of committees and the U.S. Department of Education – it’s not that they’re just incompetent fools and don’t know what they’re doing,” said international journalist and educator Alex Newman. “They want the system to be doing what it’s doing, and that is destroying real education.”
Real education, according to Newman, means developing knowledgeable, well-rounded Americans who can think critically, process information, make good decisions, support themselves and serve the needs of society.
In other words, real education produces productive members of a capitalist society.
