That is a pretty fair idea of how i see it too..that;s why i expressed
my angst...I haven't taught tyet but i know it's gonna be very
difficult to operate in any true sense of the old fashioned worn words
"normality"...Schools should stop working the 6,7,8, year olds so
hard...they repel....onve they start to repel/they live for the feeling.
...and they're out for your blood:>...right to the end in high school where
they have mastered the art of repeling.So I thing it's important tyo stop the rot//rot//....It's not warfare....but the enviroment and atmosphere the adukls
//adults create is what the kids get ///that's thge system they don't like it
so why do we create it ..Let thet children have more/as much as you can give
//more play timr and more air.Structure it in so tehy /they keep a healthy
attitude to the institution through the early and mid teens.Where their
learning skills are more fine tuned .."where's the angst mate ,i don't
like this "...
"this is the social ideal;and the men of culture are ..the true
apostles of equality. The great men of culture are those who have had a passionfor diffusing,for making prevail,for carrying from one end of socirety
to the other,the best knowledge,the best ideas of their time who have
labored to divest knowledge of all that was hard and harsh,uncouth
difficult,abstract,professional,exclusive;to humanise it,to make it efficient outside the clique of the cultivated and the learned,yet still remaining the b
/best knowledge and thought of the time;and a true source therefore, of s
sweetness and light."
Matthew arnold"Culture and Anarchy" -sweetness and light- 1869
