Orthodoxy: One of--if not THE main--the reasons we teach people to read in school is:
SO THAT THEY CAN FURTHER EXPLORE the ideas to which they are exposed in "school," and correct or amend what they've been 'taught' which their own researches suggest is not strictly "true."
All "history" taught in schools is propaganda. Who doesn't know that?
Then it's up to you to find out about and correct it in your own head
Yes, unfortunately, I am sad to report: living and learning requires some FUCKING THOUGHT. It's depressing, I know but,after all, education doesn't--or at least isn't supposed--to stop with school.
School is spozed to be the place where you learn how to continue learning. Only an idiotic putz thinks "school" is the end of that trail..
