Derrick Jensen on Compulsory Education Systems

Short piece on Education by Derrick Jensen, in which he details the truth about the Education System... He notes that Educations latin root is 'educare' meaning to draw out, and comes from the greek, used to describe the work of a midwive "to be present at the birth of" and compares that with Seduction, which has the latin root of 'seducare' meaning 'to lead astray' or 'to lead away from oneself' - in essence a process of self alienation.


And it is this that teachers, and their Union Leadership, should properly be addressing when drawing attention to their 'stresses' because it is this more than anything else that lies at the root of their stress!

Kindest regards
