Education - what education? (2)

Returning to the first post on this subject, the content of which shows that the minds of children are being moulded to accept what can only be termed politically correct views, coupled with the fact that schools are continually provided with EU 'data', books, diaries etc; I was struck by beliefs as outlined in the obituary of The Rev Canon Lord Pilkington of Oxenford which appeared yesterday in the Telegraph.
"Pilkington’s belief that schools should not be the agents of social engineering........"
"What, he wanted to know, was wrong with academic elitism?"
"He was particularly scathing about the modern mantra of “inclusion” and the idea that vocational qualifications should be “equivalent” to the academic."
Hear, Hear!

The mantra of fabianism at work, indoctrinate the children and achieve the long term outcome you so desire.

I second that, having been in that game.

Hear hear!

The Fabians have been working toward this for years and Blair appointed them to almost all the controlling posts in Education, Information and Public Relations. Their agenda has been public for years, yet we allowed them to get away with it unchallenged.

I agree entirely with the Rev Canon.
