Education was a personal practice before the end of 1800’s. However, things changed in the year 1902 when John D Rockefeller together with Frederick T Gates formed the universal education board. The two were close friends but Frederic T Gates was also a personal and business adviser to Rockefeller.
There is a repetition of what is taught in our institutions of learning. We learn what our parents learnt which is still what their parents also learnt. It is at school that we are taught how the universe works and what we should do in order to survive in it. A time has now come to do away with these restrictive arrangements so that we can become conscious of our full capabilities. This will enable us to come up with something that reverberates with us.
“Far from failing in its intended task, our educational system is in fact succeeding magnificently, because its aim is to keep the people thoughtless enough to go on supporting the system.” -Richard Mitchell
“I want a nation of workers, not thinkers.” – John D Rockefeller
“I never let my education interfere with my learning.” – Albert Einstein
