The purpose of Education, keep hold of your child.


What is the purpose of your child attending school?  To be educated of course you think.  But are you really aware of the hidden implications lurking amongst the experience of sending your child to school.

At university we were taught about the ‘Hidden curriculum’, a set of attitudes and beliefs that your child also attains whilst in the school environment.  So bearing this in mind, what are the dominant factors one should consider when sending a child to school.

I believe you have to define what is the purpose of education, as in the handbook for the national curriculum it states,

      ‘Education influences and reflects the values of society,

        and the kind of society we want to be’.

Very powerful when you pause and realise what possibilities come out of this type of agenda.

A parent who is spiritually connected and aware of their purpose in life would be careful not to place their child in an environment that will not only hijack their self work but re-establish their beliefs and attitudes about the purpose of life.

So when choosing a school look at the following to ensure your child is protected from such an awful ending:

1) Look at the social demographics

2) School management

3) The grades

4) Be ready to invest a little time out of everyday to learn about for needs to be re learnt when your child’s schema of thinking is growing and developing as to how they see and understand the world.

And lastly, be prepared for your child’s intelligence to excel yours, we are raising them to do even better than we did.  Therefore we should not belittle their speech or inquisitiveness to seek the truth, because they are a lot closer to it than we are.
