Education is important because it brings out the best in children who are going to be the adults of the next generation. At all events, that is the way that it should be and it is the reason why subversives with agendas have infiltrated the industry. There was a term being used by post Marxists a few decades ago; entryism which means worming one's way into positions of influence and power in order to take over. It was part of the Long March Through The Institutions & the Marxist Takeover Of The Ruling Classes. They do not use them in public anymore because they have done it. They are imposing Cultural Marxism. The objective is Cultural Genocide They have succeeded. Here are some comments on the results. One answer is Home Schooling. Then you know what they being fed.
Education is a weapon whose effects
depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
E. G. West ex Wiki
Edwin George West (27 February 1922 - 6 October 2001) was an economist and economic historian at Carleton University [ in Canada ] interested in the relationship between the state and the education sector. He applied public choice theory to state education and "he had a profound influence on both academic scholarship and education policy in Britain and abroad  The E.G. West Centre at Newcastle University is named in his honor.
His book, Education and the State, published in 1965, continues to be highly influential. He researched how the state gradually became more and more involved in the education system of England and other countries. He examined the effect it had on the quality of education, concluding that its influence was ultimately negative.
West was visiting professor at the University of California at Berkeley (1974), Emory University (1985-1988), the University of Western Australia (1995) and the University of Kentucky (1995).
And Vindictiveness For All
The education industry is run by Moral Cretins who are dumbing down, keeping children ignorant. They gave up teaching grammar years ago. Now they don't even teach spelling in government schools in Thamesmead, a part of London where drugggies, blacks etc. are warehoused - at cost of millions.
They were designed to teach grammar. Now they don't teach spelling. An ex-teacher explains the Marxist takeover; saying also that the Tories are no better.
A London School Has Banned All Technology [ 1 October 2015 ]
This applies to children up to the age of 14 and makes sense. It cuts them off from a lot of Propaganda albeit this might not be the main reason. Giving them the opportunity to think for themselves is good. The Acorn School is a public school, which means that the parents are paying for education; that they are reasonably successful and are likely to encourage intellectual curiosity.
Education Is A Racket, A Ponzi Scheme
The price goes up. The quality goes down. Why leave a university with a bit of paper owing thousands when you could have gotten a worthwhile job four years ago?
Modern Education And The Destruction Of Culture
The education industry is a Propaganda tool being used by our self-appointed Invisible Enemy as part of their Culture War against us. See Nature Versus Nurture on the point.
This is about how to understand what you read as well as what you should be familiar with. Ultimately it is counter-Propaganda or even Deconstruction.
Academic strife: the American University in the slough of despond
Universities are about bringing on a new generation of the intellectually gifted; future leaders, researchers etc. aren't they? If only. They are a maelstrom of malice and political agendas. Tom Sharpe would have had fun with them. His satire was too gentle or English universities were nicer.
In 1895 they were serious about education. It was intended to help people help themselves. The syllabus was impressive. Could you have passed this exam, the one taken by 14 years old children in rural America?
Education and Politics
Education is very political. Here is more on the point.
Education In Los Angeles
Read this and shudder for the future of England. Los Angeles is different - for the moment but London is being made into another place like it. Importing blacks, yellows, browns, Third World undesirables, free loaders generally has that effect. That is why it being done to us. Then see what will happen in the schools.
Education In Nigeria
Education is Nigeria is different. In Lagos market they sell biltong, dried meat and babies disappear. Cause and effect? That is what the police say; they should know how things worked.
Education Should Aim At Destroying Free Will Says Bertrand Russell
"Education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished." (Page 50 - The Intended Result of Education).
The education racket does sort out the clever, the cunning. It is about Brainwashing, socialization, Propagandizing & Social Engineering just like the Main Steam Media.
Enstupidation - Fred Explains Education
You might feel that Fred over-states his case. In some ways he does but not by much. There is a solid core of truth in what he tells us. It makes a good case for Home Schooling.
Is not a problem; it is an answer and a very good one. It gets your children out of the grip of the propaganda machine.
Measuring intelligence makes sense. So does using it. Find it, then bring it on sounds good to me. But politics get in the way. Psychologists measured it then decided they did not like the answers they got so now they claim it cannot be measured. This is because blacks rate low.
Keith Windschuttle And Education
Doctor Windschuttle tells us that history education in Australia is corrupt and a pack of lies. They were telling us that we oppressed Abos out of sheer nastiness. He named the guilty. They didn't sue for libel. In other words they are guilty as Hell.
London School of Economics
Was set up by communist subversives of the Fabian Society, as a working tool to destroy England
Yes, Homosexuality is being marketed by the Media [ the BBC has a very personal interest here ] and the education industry. It is one front in a war of subversion; destroying our moral standards and our culture. Antonio Gramsci, the chief theoretician of the Italian communist party would have loved it.
Multiculturalism's War on Education
Back to school nowadays means back to classrooms, lessons and textbooks permeated by multiculturalism and its championing of "diversity." Many parents and teachers regard multiculturalism as an indispensable educational supplement, a salutary influence that "enriches" the curriculum. But is it?.......
Leaf through a school textbook and you'll find that there is a definite pattern behind multiculturalism's reshaping of the curriculum. What multiculturalists seek is not the goal they advertise, but something else entirely.........
What these textbooks reveal is a concerted effort to portray the most backward, impoverished and murderous cultures as advanced, prosperous and life-enhancing. Multiculturalism's goal is not to teach about other cultures, but to promote -- by means of distortions and half-truths -- the notion that non-Western cultures are as good as, if not better than, Western culture.
We are being lied to big time. The education industry is just as bad as the media and quite possibly more dangerous.
The Myth of American Meritocracy
Getting into the top universities in America is highly important for success. The process has been corrupted by the pressure & Jews.
Parents Right; Math Experts Wrong
"Parents Right; Maths Experts Wrong. curriculum mistake made by the so-called education experts who demanded that schools ..."
The Lunatic Fringe is out there and the kiss of death for anything they control.

The University of Chicago is a Moral Cesspool
By FRANCIS A. BOYLE
Professor of Law, University of Illinois School of Law
It is now a matter of public record that immediately after the terrible tragedy of September 11, 2001, U.S. Secretary of War Donald Rumsfeld and his pro-Israeli "Neoconservative" Deputy Paul Wolfowitz began to plot, plan, scheme and conspire to wage a war of aggression against Iraq by manipulating the tragic events of September 11th in order to provide a pretext for doing so. Of course Iraq had nothing at all to do with September 11th or supporting Al-Qaeda . But that made no difference to Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and the numerous other pro-Israeli Neo-cons in the Bush Jr. administration.
These pro-Israeli Neo-cons had been schooled in the Machiavellian/Nietzschean theories of Professor Leo Strauss, who taught political philosophy at the University of Chicago in their Department of Political Science........................ Chicago routinely trained me and numerous other students to become ruthless and unprincipled Machiavellians............... For their own different reasons, both groups also worked hand-in-hand to support Israel's genocidal Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, an internationally acknowledged war criminal. Strange bedfellows indeed.
Universities are very influential; training young minds at an important stage of development. That is why Chicago was infiltrated by subversives with very ugly agendas and morals to match. If you think that Oxford and Cambridge are different you should have another look. The BBC is where their graduates go in order to do the maximum damage.
Education Perverted [ 1 November 2008 ]
It's always uncomfortable when we have to humour someone close to us in the name of avoiding conflict. Right now at Thames Valley University, entire science departments must be feeling slightly embarrassed about their degrees in quackery. Because despite the refusal of all universities to disclose what they teach on these, the leaks keep coming, and Prof. David Colquhoun of UCL continues to archive the comedy on his website.......... The University of Westminster have consistently failed to offer me or Colquhoun meaningful information about their degree courses. But we do have - via Colquhoun - a leaked exam paper from its homeopathy BSc degree course finals, asking questions about miasma. Miasmatic theory originated in the middle ages and lasted until the middle of the 19th century, when diseases such as cholera and plague were believed to be spread by foul air, known as miasmas....... If I was going to teach anything on a science degree, it wouldn't be miasma, and it wouldn't be a secret.
The education industry matters to its employees. Wages pay for life styles. They have security while honest men struggle to find work and make ends meet. Bring back magic, alchemy, what ever as long as we can find punters to be students.
Science Teaching Sabotaged [ 21 January 2006 ]
There is no such thing as truth in science or anywhere else. Some propositions are worth stating clearly because they are so evidently false. That is the idea being used to ruin education in Oz. It has already been used in the humanities with great success.
2 + 2 = 4? It is culturally determined and only a part of a belief system according to various rogues who have to count on their fingers. There are people in the teaching racket that don't want you to know the truth. They get away with it in government operations. Public schools are a big part of the answer.
Jungle maths in swing with West [ 21 January 2006 ]
To put it differently American children are just as ignorant of geometry as isolated natives in the Amazon. This source also suggests that maths are not culturally determined. Keith Windschuttle has views on the systematic fraud which Australian history teaching with a political agenda firmly in mind. See Keith Windschuttle and Education
Dennis O'Keeffe Explains The Education Industry by Sean Gabb
The subject of his lecture was standard for Dennis. There is, he said, a contradiction at the heart of our society. We live in one of the richest, most successful societies that has ever existed. Modernity depends on property rights secured by an impersonal framework of general laws, in which we can develop and use our human and physical capital to the best of our ability. Yet we have an education system that denies all the assumptions on which our success is built. The system has been captured by a pack of educational bureaucrats and academics who daily preach the evil of all that we have achieved, who deny the validity of our open society, and who have imposed a centrally-ordered curriculum that had denied millions of working class children the ability that he had of getting a good basic education and take advantage of the social mobility that capitalism has made possible. The answer is not to tinker with the system, but to replace it with something more receptive to consumer choice. We would never tolerate an economy run in this way, he said. Why do we tolerate an education system that reproduces the methods and failures of the old planned economies of the Soviet world? The middle classes can buy their way out of the system by sending their children to private schools. We need to find ways of extending this option of exit to the working classes. His solution is to abolish the compulsory attendance laws and to hand out vouchers to parents to let them buy the education of their choice.
This is fairly damning and from someone in the business.
Deliberate Dumbing Down of America or on line at Deliberate Dumbing Down Of America
Charlotte Iserbyt is to be greatly commended for having put together the most formidable and practical compilation of documentation describing the “deliberate dumbing down” of American children by their education system. Anyone interested in the truth will be shocked by the way American social engineers have systematically gone about destroying the intellect of millions of American children for the purpose of leading the American people into a socialist world government controlled by behavioural and social scientists.
It sounds all too much like the education industry in England. Hegel is a dismal rogue who influenced Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler, not a double to be proud of. Mrs Iserbyte mentions Pursuing Excellence: A Study of U.S. Twelfth-Grade Mathematics and Science Achievement which available on line. Read for yourself. Think for yourself. Decide for yourself.
Jews Get Into University By Fraud, Not Merit [ 15 December 2012 ]
Ron Unz on the illusory American meritocracy
An enduring aspect of the self-concept of Jews is that their ascent to elite status in America and elsewhere is the natural result of a meritocracy. For example, after Elena Kagan was nominated for the Supreme Court, Robert Frank penned an article in the Wall Street Journal (“That Bright, Dying Star, the American WASP”) hailing the rise of a meritocracy where Jews could finally assume their rightful place as an elite, and cheering the demise of those lazy, corrupt WASPs who did everything they could to thwart the rise of the Jews, including placing limits on Jewish enrollment in the elite universities. The fact that Kagan is remarkably unqualified to be a Supreme Court Justice in terms of the usual standards (judicial experience, academic publications, or even courtroom experience) never seems to have entered his mind. In Frank’s view, her ascent from Princeton undergraduate to Harvard Law, to high-level government positions and dean of Harvard Law is the American meritocracy in action—a view that conveniently ignores the role of her Jewish ethnic connections (see also here) in greasing her ascent, most egregiously her appointment as dean of Harvard Law by Larry Summers.
Ron Unz has published a very important article showing that Kagan’s remarkable rise is a symptom of a far wider issue—that Jewish admission to elite universities is far from meritocratic (“The myth of American meritocracy: How corrupt are Ivy League admissions?”). (On the basis of Unz’s article, it would be interesting to look at Kagan’s SAT and LSAT scores!) Because of their role in replenishing elites, university admissions is a huge lever of power. The implication of Unz’s article (although he would probably shy away from this wording) is that a Jewish elite now controls this lever of power and has used it to its advantage, resulting in a massive overrepresentation of Jews in elite universities compared to their academic qualifications or intelligence, while discriminating against non-Jewish Whites and against Asians............
Ron Unz has made a major contribution with this article. Let’s hope it has the effect of waking up some of the many millions of slumbering, fearful Whites who are presently just standing by and watching their displacement.
This rather long article is not superficial waffle designed to incite the masses. It is grim truth about Jews attacking civilization by low cunning and fraud. Recall to how they treat the people of poor, down trodden Palestine; murder, rape, arson, torture, you name it.
Jews Propagandize English School Children With Holocaust® Visits [ 24 February 2014 ]
If you laugh in the wrong places they will get irritated. You are supposed to pretend you believe every word of it, just like German politicians. They are generating Western Guilt in order to destroy Western Civilization. It is different in Israel. The Zionist crazies who run the place use the Holocaust® Story to incite Fear & paranoia. It keeps their fools, their ignorant in line.
Secret Schools Used To Indoctrinate Jews And Islamics [ 17 May 2016 ]
Thousands of children are hidden from authorities in unregistered Islamic and Jewish schools and are vulnerable to 'extremism and radicalisation,' Ofsted has warned. Inspectors have identified 100 suspected unregistered schools across the country since a team was set up in January to investigate the problem............
Unregistered schools are those that operate outside the supervision of the Department for Education, local authorities and Ofsted inspections and many [ as in well over 90% - Editor ] of those identified are understood [ as in known ] to be Jewish or Islamic.
Sir Michael has written to Nicky Morgan, the Education Secretary, to say he is 'deeply alarmed' by the number of unregistered schools - the vast majority of which are faith schools that teach children a religious education.
Some of the schools have been found to be exposing children to literature about 'extremist, sexist or partisan views' and for failing to teach basic facts about British institutions..........
He also said he welcomed the new legislation the Government intends on unregistered and supplementary schools, adding: 'I know we both share a determination to take swift and decisive action against those who are operating illegal schools and thereby putting children at risk of harm, including the risk of exposure to extremism and radicalisation.'
The Daily Mail is dancing round the truth. The basic reality is that Jews run their schools as Propaganda machines, keeping children ignorant of English apart from anything else. One product of these schools, Shlomo Benizri, an Israeli politician, Minister of Health, slaver and thief told us that Homosexuals Caused Earthquake In Israel so he is 'homophobic'.
Islamics are much the same. Third World crazies were imported with malice aforethought. Now they are producing a second or third generation to fill the Trojan Horses that our wonderful politicians have created.
Government Schools Are Propaganda Machines Says A Jew [ 2 July 2016 ]
According to Sir Michael Wilshaw, 100 such secret - or unregistered - schools have so far been identified by an Ofsted investigative taskforce as operating around Britain. In a letter to education secretary Nicky Morgan, he said some of these schools were teaching children "extremist sexist or partisan views", adding that they risked "undermining the government's efforts to ensure that all schools are promoting British values, including tolerance and respect for others". Sir Michael said that a minority of the schools are Jewish.
If Jewish pupils are, indeed, being educated in secrecy in their thousands, it's best they are brought out of the shadows voluntarily, before we face the unedifying prospect of our community leaders being dragged before the courts.
The Jew is fingering secret schools run by Islamics but his allegation regarding main stream government schools marketing 'British' values i.e. government approved propaganda is important. Obviously he does not mention government schools in Palestine, the Stolen Land that Jews call Israel inciting Race hatred against their victims, against Palestinians.
Universities Are Marxist Propaganda Machines [ 5 April 2017 ]
Of all our cultural institutions that have been captured by intolerant Leftist activists, our universities present the saddest and most ridiculous spectacle.
A university is meant to be a place of intellectual enquiry, where young minds obtain an education that will expand their horizons and expose them to the best that Western civilisation has to offer.
But many have fallen very far from this ideal. Instead, they have degenerated into places more of indoctrination than education, wasting precious time pandering to the demands of special interest groups, beset by small-minded and self-absorbed campaigns to do with students’ ‘well-being’.
Universities appear to have forgotten the genuine challenges and lofty pleasures of learning, or their role as key transmitters of our national culture, history and heritage.
This is not new news but it is reality. The tutors running humanities departments hand out degrees or not according to politics. The corresponding fanatics a few centuries ago burnt people at the stake for their pains. This lot are just as self-righteous, just as full of hate.
Grossly Overpaid Teacher Suspended Due To Fraud Allegations [ 10 May 2017 ]
The highest paid head teacher in England has been suspended from his role over what are said to be allegations of fraud.
Sir Craig Tunstall — whose earnings including pension for the past academic year were £374,000 — was suspended by governors of the Gipsy Hill Federation of primary schools in south London. He was knighted for services to education in 2014 and is recognised by the Department for Education (DfE) as a national leader of education.
The governors confirmed that the suspension was pending an internal investigation undertaken with Lambeth council.
A source suggested that the investigation related to claims of fraud and the school stressed that there were no concerns relating to child protection.
He looks like a supercilious chancer. Lambeth has corruption aplenty.
Marxists Have Infiltrated The Education Industry [ 15 May 2017 ]
What are they teaching your children? Are they teaching them how to think – or what to think? Worse, are they monitoring you by trapping your children into answering intrusive questions about your private opinions? Do you know? You may think that the crazy ideas of the Hard Left are safely contained in Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party, or the Guardian newspaper.
But some recent disturbing letters from parents of school-age children made my stomach lurch. I saw in these accounts the gradually solidifying shape of a nasty new intolerance, state-financed and more or less unavoidable by anyone with school-age children.
First of all, for a flavour of the ideas encouraged in our schools, look at a recent competition for ‘gifted pupils’. Let’s say this was ‘somewhere in Southern England’. Its theme was ‘2016: A Pivotal Year In History’, which might seem harmless. But what were the 15-year-olds involved actually doing?
The competition brief allowed for a wide range of topics to be covered. Wide? Well, the winners discussed ‘prejudice in 2016’. What prejudice was that? ‘Incidents of hate crime after Brexit, Islamophobia and the media portrayal of these events.’ They also dealt with, yes, ‘gender, religious and racial equality’.
The boy has recently come home from school and – with a note of disapproval in his voice – asked his father: ‘Dad, why do you read the Daily Mail?’ It turns out that a teacher had asked the pupils how their parents had voted for in the referendum, and when one of the pupils said ‘Brexit’, this teacher had responded, in a disapproving tone, by asking: ‘Why did they vote for that?’................
Governments come and go, supposedly Left-wing and supposedly Right-wing – though the supposedly Right-wing ones usually turn out to be nothing of the kind. But in the schools, the universities and most of the public sector, the wild Marxist Cultural Revolution quietly continues its Long March Through The Institutions.
Brainwashed teachers follow the Party Line; it gets them off the dole queue. It is good for promotion too. Peter Hitchens, a Jew and one time Marxist knows what he is talking about.
