Education Purrletariat 05/06/2017 (Sat) 20:13:09 No. 240
What should Education under a Leftist system look like? The current system obviously doesn't work as can be seen by the large amounts of dropouts and general scorn and dissatisfaction that is directed towards the system.

I'm personally leaning towards the Sudbury Model of Education, essentially the government, school, and parents have no say in what is taught (preventing bias and the brainwashing type of education in modern public and religious schools).
The school's rules as well as other actions are decided by a democratic "School Meeting" consisting of Staff members and the entire Student Population, each has an equal vote and the staff possesses no veto power. Meaning that the school is mostly run by the students, there is no curriculum and no classes, the students decide what to learn, how to do it, and can ask other students or staff for assistance if they wish.
There are no divisions by age or skill meaning that younger students can interact with older ones at will and vice versa, allowing for older students to act as big brothers/sisters to younger students giving them a chance to develop greater empathy and responsibility while giving younger students the ability to find mentors (that they can personally identify with, unlike the ones assigned under current mentor-ship or tutoring programs).

It's worked very well already in the few schools that have tried it:

What would be other good ideas and ways to reform the current system?
Education should be centered around gaining knowledge and abilities, not preparing the next generation of willing wageslaves.

I think sudbury schools are bit idealist on the large scale, if you look at them now it’s mainly rich kids, the Soviet school system was the best in the world
I would need to do more research into this, but honestly I feel likr highly wide spread highly subsidized apprenticeship programs, in an econony where your well being is pretty much assured would be pretty lit.

if you actually want to abolish the division of labor, you should let people just be uneducated if they don't want to be. My ideal is Aristotle teaching Alexander. I am pro-rural idiocy. Suck it, Karl.
There are definitely some people out there who are quick learners and some who are retarded, but I still don't like the idea of having separate schools for the gifted and those barely above disability. People can be gifted in a very one-sided way, so I've never seen the logic in putting somebody in class number whatever and then that number applying to all fields simultaneously. Suppose a kid got great results in math but rather underwhelming results in English. The results on one track should not block or unlock anything on another track.

>the students decide what to learn

So the education plan is going to be set by who ever can influence students.

Is that going to be better ? Are you going to attempt to control this ?

Every year the Party Congress creates a highly centralized education circulum that students are forced to learn and if they don’t they are hit with rulers.

Except that kids have underdeveloped minds and can’t think or do stuff for themselves. They need people to tell them what to do and what not to do, and if need be punish them if they misbehave.
