The Illiteracy In Our Western Education

Does education in the real sense of it means Gullibility? Or must education be restricted to a certain limit? Mean-while, the education the west brought to us, which they called formal, is limited in scope and tends towards restricting the recipient of the education. The likes of Isaac Newton and most of Our fore-fathers in Africa, never went to any fore walls of a school. Every where they found themselves is aschool to them. No wonder, the law of “gravity” was propounded when a man observed the dropping of a fruit from a tree. A lot of things were discovered through the natural observations of events and things created by God in their natural environment, without any form of restrictions whatsoever. All the western educationhas succeeded in doing is compiling all what this “classroomless” scholars have achieved. They then brought itto the fore walls they now called school; so that, we can learn from what they have documented; the when, the how and the why of their discoveries. However, we should also not under-estimate the fact that this western education has thought us only to serve with absolute “loyalty” and “Respect”, but thought little or nothing about leadership and independence. If one should x-ray, this form of education, using England, as a case study.
It will be discovered that the orientation of this study tends towards service to the “Queen” and the “Royal family”. How then does one expect anything different from them, when they exported their form of education to their colonies. Moreover, without been told, we all know the rights, That is conceded to this so called “Ordained by God” rulers. And this form of education has been so spread around the world to the extent that every school leavers and graduates are all looking for whom to serve. Instead of thinking of ideas of becoming independent. After considering all the negativity of this Western education one could be right to say, that it is high time to re-evaluate the curriculum of our adopted western education, so that, the wrong knowledge and belief that has been imparted by the old, Can be corrected and erased with time. This should be done in order to face-out the lack of self belief; that have been deposited in us.
