Dear Editor,

The purpose of our education system is not and was never about education. Instead, the covert goal of the system is the destruction of the core values of compassion, co-operation, empathy and honesty. This system kills our individual orientation and civilises us to the materialistic Western civilisation.

This system focuses on creating “better” consumers. Therefore, high-profile careers are the important factors of schooling. The traditional ways of co-operation and helping one another are slowly dying.

How does schooling help us to understand our purpose and our spirituality? Emotional growth and social connections are important factors in human holistic development. How is school helping in this area?

Schooling focuses on answering one question: How can I earn a lot of money?

Western schooling is merely about the same curriculum — training students for a scarce job in an urban centre. The diversity of culture and human individuality is being destroyed.

Parents, are you allowing your children to be snatched from a creative world of wonder to a lookalike, make-believe world? This current system is a method that fails to account for individual differences. A factory for producing uniformed results from diverse inputs.

Parents, your children are like no other. Do not allow your child to be a creation of the system. The power is with you. Resist any agency or system that seeks to mould your child to be like one another.

This mould is the one that supports the power base in our society — both business and political. The system needs obedient, mind-controlled slaves.

Parents, wake up.
