The High School Diploma Paradigm

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Is a high school diploma of 1950 equal to a graduate with a 1970 diploma? And a 1980 high school diploma as worthy as a 2000 diploma.. And now lets go out to 2020.. I suggest this because the education has changed dramatically in that time frame.. So the 1975 graduate in discussion with the 1995 graduate will sound to the 95 grad as if the 75 grad has no education, thus no diploma.. And of course the 95 grad sounds insane to the 75 grad.. Basically I’m suggesting that those older diplomas are out dated, obsolete.. My 75 diploma is a worthless piece of scrap paper.. And then of course many of us have various levels of academic credentials and we’ve kept up to date with the changes and reeducation process as those requirements have evolved over time, changes and improvements in whatever it is we do professionally.. We used to do this on our own, now most licensed professions, mine included require we update our education.. They call it reeducation and we now pay for that.. It amounts to “teaching” me how to do something I already know how to do on my own, and they get paid. If I refuse they suspend the certificates.. It’s of course just more nanny State bullshit… And of course everyone, well almost everyone, simply bent over grabbed their ankles and accepted the rectal violation..

The purpose of mandatory public education in this country;

1) The adjustive or adaptive function. Schools are to establish fixed habits of reaction to authority. This, of course, precludes critical judgment completely. It also pretty much destroys the idea that useful or interesting material should be taught, because you can’t test for reflexive obedience until you know whether you can make kids learn, and do, foolish and boring things.
2) The integrating function. This might well be called “the conformity function,” because its intention is to make children as alike as possible. People who conform are predictable, and this is of great use to those who wish to harness and manipulate a large labor force.
3) The diagnostic and directive function. School is meant to determine each student’s proper social role. This is done by logging evidence mathematically and anecdotally on cumulative records. As in “your permanent record.” Yes, you do have one.
4) The differentiating function. Once their social role has been “diagnosed,” children are to be sorted by role and trained only so far as their destination in the social machine merits – and not one step further. So much for making kids their personal best.
5) The selective function. This refers not to human choice at all but to Darwin’s theory of natural selection as applied to what he called “the favored races.” In short, the idea is to help things along by consciously attempting to improve the breeding stock. Schools are meant to tag the unfit – with poor grades, remedial placement, and other punishments – clearly enough that their peers will accept them as inferior and effectively bar them from the reproductive sweepstakes. That’s what all those little humiliations from first grade onward were intended to do: wash the dirt down the drain.
6) The propaedeutic function. The societal system implied by these rules will require an elite group of caretakers. To that end, a small fraction of the kids will quietly be taught how to manage this continuing project, how to watch over and control a population deliberately dumbed down and declawed in order that government might proceed unchallenged and corporations might never want for obedient labor.

Thank goodness you got that diploma…

We want one class of persons to have a liberal education
and we want another class of persons,
a very much larger class of necessity,
to forgo the privileges of a liberal education.”
— Woodrow Wilson (1909)
Whatta deal.. Where do I sign up for that diploma….

I was just thinking we should Ban long-range social engineering…

What a magnificent public schools system, fact is it’s free, just drop your children off and let em be brainwashed by state indoctrination gurus..
The aim.. . is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.
an educational system deliberately designed to produce mediocre intellects, to hamstring the inner life, to deny students appreciable leadership skills, and to ensure docile and incomplete citizens – all in order to render the populace “manageable.” Certified Manageable dummy’s.. A scientific management of children, preparing them to be scientifically managed as grown up people yet childish in their minds.. Thus manageable by a parens patria daddy…Big brother.. Elite knowitallists…

It isn’t really free because you trade in your mind for theirs…

Don’t forget your lunch money kiddies…
