Recreating (and advancing) pk’s censored domains: & / Teaching / Society / Social Order / DeGate / DeSchooling / School’s Purpose /

A major purpose of school, closely allied to Illich’s statement, iterated here, that school is the culture’s reproductive organ, is to protect ancient discredited epistemologies, perennial defective software, bad philosophy, bad religion, popular superstitions, lazy ways of thinking … To resist: to make sure they do not get (easily) upgraded.
It’s impossible to tell a tribe of cannibals that they’re primitive. It’s no easier with Catholics, or Baptists, members of the AMA, lawyers … or Congress: let alone the teachers’ association.
