Educational channels on television, books, the internet and video games.    
   
Frankly, the educational system is in the toilet, and has largely been reduced to mnemonics and standardized testing.    
   
I think reading is the best way to learn, but most kids aren't interested, from what I've seen most just memorize.Hell I remember a study that found that most college kids don't really learn anything in a 2 year span.   
   
Obviously something is wrong.

I guess it really depends on the school that you're going to, because I always went to "A" rated public schools and I felt very engaged in the learning process. At every school I went to, they always focused on the students having a firm grasp on the material more than any standardized test. But, maybe that isn't the norm.

This is just a theory, but I think college is a form of seperating people from others for careers. You know how they say people get higher paying jobs from going to college? Well they can get those jobs, not because of what they learned, but because they went to college. Im sure it didn't always use to be like this either, when people sought out knowledge and people sought out teaching it.

My third grade teacher tried to get me to teach one of the morons in class. Not 3 years earlier I had to be tutored in reading and speech, moral of the story a good teacher makes everything.

Yeah, you can neglect studying constantly and just pull an all-nighter and pass the exams, then forget about what you studied/presented at the exam and still pass.

At least a lot of people can succeed in that.

I remember we had to do an presentation in class about slavery   
   
it ended up with me being partner'd up with my asian friend from Thailand and then we read about slavery and we got bored. then we start talking about, what if we were living in that time? like for real. who would survieve and that kind of stuff   
   
Then I told my friend that I would be a rich guy that has alot of slaves and that he (my friend) would be my "head" slave, and that I would buy him for 5$.    
   
   
then he said, okay if you actually give me 5$ I will be your slave.   
   
then I said GREAT, now you're my slave!   
   
Him: But you havent paid me yet?   
   
Me: Shut up slave, you don't have the rights to get paid.

User avatar #18 to #8 - xdeathspawnx (11/03/2013) [-]
there was slavery in Canada when it was still a colony, so slavery would still probably be taught about in Canadian schools.

That was more Asian slaves. They couldn't read the minds of the captors who were sent over to China to find cheap workers, and had to build the railway.

I'm guessing that it's because he's somewhat ignorant and doesn't remember his lessons since he didn't really pay attention. The slave trade being abolished in 1833 by the British is commonly taught in most places.

This implies you can't even learn anything outside of school.

As for history related things? I knew 95% of of the things we "learned" about in highschool, outside of school before hand from personal research.

At least here in the United States, public education has become a corporation - or rather a machine based on the principle "Get as many kids in as possible, pass them with the easiest but 'acceptable' method. Get them out. Repeat."

They've dumbed it down so heavily now that everything (well, atleast most,) is based on standardized testing which is just based on regurgitation of information that you'll remember not much longer after your school career is over with.

Not to mention, there's no critical thinking in the class rooms. Especially in classes like Literature and History. Knowing all these facts is useless when you can't even explain them to someone outside of the definition you were told.

But, you are not required to attend school? Or is it in America or England or wherever she is from. Isn't education a choice in every country?

Well in the US a child is required to attend school until they graduate their 12th year, or turn 18 at which point they may drop out.

Nope, even my ****** country requires at least 11 (or 10, depending on if you started elementary school before 2004) years of education.

It wasn't illegal in Britain until 2012.
User avatar #24 to #22 - benjamino (11/03/2013) [-]
ackchuyally It wasn't illegal to own another person until 2010, you're confusing the year.
But everything else surrounding slavery was illegal, so they just sort of overlooked making it illegal to own someone. You couldn't work anyone like a slave, make them labour or do as you said without payment and fair hours, human trafficking wasn't allowed.
So basically the most you could do was own another person, if they entered into it willingly, and you couldn't actually treat them as a slave without it being illegal.

ah, I stand corrected good sir, my apologies.

So they just banned master/slave relationships?
#62 to #38 - vgmddg (11/03/2013) [-]
Well... I guess Britain isn't allowed to have USB devices then.

USB devices interface with the computer in a master/slave type relationship, where the host computer controls when data is sent to and from the USB device.

His point stands- it can be slavery nonetheless. It was a loose analogy, but it still disproved your claim.

The point was different, but it still disproved your claim.

lol no it didn't.
User avatar #109 to #108 - bladebites (11/05/2013) [-]
Yes it did.
Your statement:
"its not slavery if its for your own common good."
That's ridiculously incorrect. You're right about school not being slavery, but your argument is ridiculous.
He said
">Herd up homeless people
>Make them work the mines
>"It's for your own good. You get a roof and a meal once a day." "
That proves that it can be slavery even if it's "for your own common good".
It disproves your claim. Give it up.
And for future reference "lol no" isn't defending your point, especially when you have literally no idea what you're talking about.

It's an analogy. It doesn't have to be about what you were referring to. He didn't say school was slavery, he was disproving your actual statement (what you actually SAID, not what you're saying you meant). Therefor; it disproves your claim.
Plain and simple.

>taking things too seriously

stop commenting back.
User avatar #111 to #110 - bladebites (11/05/2013) [-]
If you want me to stop replying, it may be a good idea to stop replying yourself, "dingus".
I'm under no stress and I'm not taking anything too seriously. It's a conversation. A discussion. Familiarize yourself with the concept. It doesn't matter what you were referring to, the statement "it's not slavery if it's for your own common good" is wrong, point blank. School isn't slavery,_ but that's not why_. It was disproven. I hardly see how I'm "under stress" for pointing that out.
Since you have literally no means of defending your point (and have made that obvious by whining in every reply without actually giving a contradiction), this discussion is pretty much over nonetheless.
#112 to #111 - ziviomimi (11/05/2013) [-]
you consider this to be a full out debate, trying to be right so you don't have the pressure of being wrong once in a while in your life. this isn't a debate. I don't even want to talk to you, but I want to enlighten you before I make this final comment. you obviously are misinterpreting the first comment I made. the person in the comment commented how school is slavery basically. I replied to this by saying "its not slavery if its for your own common good." I was talking directly to the fact that school is not slavery. of course, the FJ community took it as if I was implying something completely different, such as it can't be slavery even if you get food or shelter but still have to do hard labor. this isn't wasn't I saying. anon didn't disprove anything, he didn't even relate to what I was saying about school being slavery, loose analogy or not. "school isn't slavery" well no **** Sherlock that's what i was trying to say, but you obviously thought I was saying that "its not slavery if its for your own common good" as a general whole. don't bother replying back, there is nothing you can say. you didn't understood what I said, now I have to go back and forth with you to make sure you are fully aware of what I am trying to say. I am only referring the first comment to school not being slavery, nothing more and nothing less. so goodnight and good luck you dingus. and make sure your giant ego doesn't absorb this much arrogance in the future.
User avatar #113 to #112 - bladebites (11/06/2013) [-]
I stopped at "you consider this a full on debate..." because you're already wrong, and frankly the fact that you think you have any idea how or what a stranger on the internet is thinking is retarded.

User avatar #52 to #46 - theblondefetus (11/03/2013) [-]
No it's not. Not even a little. No school, in America at least, forces their students to work for the school, the school works to give kids an education. It's a public service. You're ******* brain dead if you think school is anything like slavery.
User avatar #107 to #52 - bladebites (11/05/2013) [-]
For the record; school isn't slavery, obviously. That wasn't my point.
User avatar #106 to #52 - bladebites (11/05/2013) [-]
I never referred to school specifically, an neither did the original comment. I'm simply stating that the remark "its not slavery if its for your own common good" is completely false.

I have a friend who recently got back from living in Germany for a few years. According to him and his family (so I'm not saying the information is 100% accurate) they have only fairly recently started teaching children about the holocaust in school, because Nazi-like political parties are gaining attention.
#21 to #20 - gorak (11/03/2013) [-]
I'm german and this is true when it comes to the former GDR. In West Germany though the holocaust has always been a major topic in school.
This is why right-wing extremist parties have a larger, but still insignificantly low, number of voters in the less wealthier east than in the west.
