New Education

By Dr. Terence Chivers New Education Now is a paper based entirely on Education in the New Age. A central aim of the paper is to determine what it is that the Tibetan expects of the new education, the term He uses to describe His educational ideas. To my surprise, it becomes clear as one reads on, that He expects us to bring about the new education, and He means us to carry it out in the social realm. His ideas about the new education then take over.

Education has a mass production mentality

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Today's educational system has a 150-year-old, assembly line, mass production mentality. The Prussian system of compulsory education, upon which many of the systems today are based, has had but one but one aim, namely to produce slaves for industry. The powers-that-be are not interested in an educated people but in a people who have been molded and shaped, through the medium of “education”, into obedient slaves.

Eco Friendly Daily

It makes sense then to educate our children today on environmental issues and concerns. Involving them now in a responsible and logical way will result in tomorrow’s adults being an educated, environmentally aware bunch, more committed than each generation before to the preservation of earth and those upon it. An educated child will grow with an increased awareness and knowledge of the world around him and may later influence his friends and peers with his pro-enviro actions.
