LftS: Schooling the World 4/5
Education is indoctrination. It shouldn’t be that way, the difference between the terms is supposed to be imparting the ability to critically think about a subject matter versus simply being told that something is true. However, in modern society, education is indoctrination. Even in societies where education is practiced correctly, there is a part of the education process that involves indoctrination that simply can’t be separated from the educational process. The passing on of culture and values as well as the continuation of a society requires that all members have certain levels of acceptance and agreeableness to the world they live in.

In 2010 Carol Black released her documentary Schooling the World with a focus on getting people to think about the impact of foreign education on indigenous peoples all over the world. In this episode of Lessons from the Screen we will be looking at this documentary, what is in it, what is it about, and should you watch it. Obviously all from our perspective. This show is all about Schooling the World, the White Man's Last Burden.
