The Realities of Institutionalized Learning

On a Muslim Homeschooling group that I belong to, someone recently sent a link to this article. I thought it was important – so I’ll share it with you. The following is an excerpt of the article – click above to read the entire article.

” When you send your child to a school they are taking on the behavior patterns of the people around them. Whatever is being taught, whether they have a good teacher or a bad teacher, whether they are becoming adequately prepared for the exams they are going to take, they are taking in all the time the behavior patterns and the peer pressure which is around them. There is also a terrible mundaneness about our present situation. In schools, both primary and secondary, children are supposedly being led to develop some sense of autonomy. They become independent, they arrive at their decisions independently and this leads to a kind of cult of the individual. Everyone has their own ideas, everyone has their own thing, and that again reflects on the wider world in the quest for being individual and unique. ”
