The Purpose Of Education

The Rev. Graylan Hagler, Pastor of Plymouth Congregational Church UCC in Washington, DC spoke to a group of citizens last night calling for individuals to act in the eradication of hatred around the world.

Reverend Hagler spoke about the atrocities happening in Palestine and how they mimic the racism that occurs here in America.

There is a war going on in our world. The struggle to maintain our humanity looms large in the face of the economic powers that work to control the world.

Money has become the god in which we have placed our trust.

We are no longer teaching our children how to be loving, kind, and compassionate.

We are teaching our children that the goal of education is to get a good job not be a good person.

Our children are being standardized by a system of education that only offers them the opportunity to work for the “hedgehogs” in some middle to low income capacity while being lulled into complacency by big screen televisions that spew the enslaving propaganda of economics.

If we are to compete in the world it must be for the position of greatest humanitarians, leading the world to peace, not greatest economic power leading the world in militaristic destruction.

Rochester just received more than $600 million dollars in defense budget contracts for photonics research that will have military applications.

As Americans we must begin to recognize and understand how and why our tax dollars are being spent. Our tax dollars must be spent to promote peace not militaristic power.

Education dollars must not be spent to standardize, desensitize, and dehumanize our children, making them accepting of the enslavement and control of the “hedgehogs” that control the economy.

The purpose of education must be to provide every child in America with a developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education that concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing their individual gifts and talents towards becoming knowledgeable, actively engaged citizens who believe that people are more important than money and that world peace must be our goal not world domination.
