We educate our youth with the intention of eradicating ignorance, hate, selfishness, greed and bigotry through empowering youth to challenge societal obstacles, enabling visionaries to envision and imaginers to imagine, and to give children a chance to free themselves from the societal constraints in which they find themselves soldered to. Without education none of this would happen, ignorance would thrive blissfully, radicalization would blaze through society, empowerment would not be sought, challenge would not desired, visionaries would be visionless, and imaginers would no longer imagine.
We are said to educate with the intention to prepare, to enable future generations to continue supporting the dream of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” and to secure the freedoms and protections we enjoy today. However, it’s becoming steadily visible that we are educating without that vision of empowerment and eradication. Today, it’s becoming steadily apparent that education has been hijacked by those who enjoy the societal regression that America is currently enjoying, those who enjoy greed and who bask in self interest and shallowness. It’s becoming apparent that we no longer care for the dream of the ability to pursue happiness, in part because it doesn’t do justice for the hunger of power and money that most of America’s adult’s desire today.
However, its educations failure that has attributed to modern day presence of the statements mentioned above. The continual integration of bigotry, radicalization, hate, ignorance, and greed combined with the continuous denial of imagination, ingenuity, challenge and empowerment in public education has caused America to lose sight of its core values and beliefs. Over the past decades, we have pushed children into institutions that have both openly and passively embedded societies inability to understand people of different cultures into a system that has literally assisted society in its continuous game of hate mongering. Over the past decades we have toned down the openness of our hate mongering ways but those ways still live passively through our educational system and it’s that passive hate that has slowly and quietly but surely turned education into a system in which enslavement of children is thriving and power is no longer abundant. Today, the older generation has literally waged war against America’s youth, with ingenious plan to imprison and impede through means of debt or prison time through means of education which is unfortunately compulsory. Entrapped at age 5 and remaining entrapped until 21, Children become nothing more than indentured servants of a system that provides a bleak outlook. Children today are funneled through what mainstream media has dubbed as “pipelines”, one pipeline being wide and high-pressured, funneling children directly into the corrupt judiciary system and the other being complex and dynamic, and funneling children into institutions where they are forced to succumb to the banks of Wall St. where they become indentured servants of a system of debt.
Nevertheless, it’s up to America’s children to fight back and to declare our own occupation of education and the inequalities that have been waged against us. For too long now adults have made it painstakingly clear that they have no interest in equally educating us and that they rather pursue power and money instead of equitable education. Now, it’s up to us to order them to cease and desist their complex destruction of our education system and for us to lean on the adults who have not been blinded by the false happiness greed and limited power brings.
