Thank you, Foster.
Most people do not realise how the current schooling system came to be. Thrive explains it here and shares a vision of a different approach:
It turns out the current model of schooling originated around the turn of the century with the Rockefeller-Founded General Education Board and other Corporate Foundations including the Carnegie Foundation. They played a key role in funding teachers, schools, Universities, researchers, and curriculum and in so doing garnered influence and control of modern education. Their funding and associated Board control allowed them to control research grants, what behavior was rewarded and who was in charge. The resulting system of schooling creates a docile workforce, used to obeying commands, but not rewarded for thinking critically. This is just what the financial elite had in mind. It makes the population easier to control and more predictable. As Frederick T. Gates, business advisor to John D. Rockefeller, said,
“In our dream we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hand. The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk…”
We are encouraged to believe the Foundations set up around the world by the wealthy “elite” are working for the good of humanity. Nothing could be further from the truth, and anything funded by the Rockefellers should not be expected to be in anybody’s interests other than their own and those whose interests they serve.
