What I recall of the series are many apes living and taking over our roles in society treating the humans like animals, and slaves. It was there merely to show a loss in control over a government kind of like desegragation battles of bussing students from the black communities to the white communities, many parents were angry because a great disruption was made disrepairing the educational system.
Today we have a growing fear for our kids have learned to argue more to be taught and they personally know this by now. By watching a few years now in the roller rinks, I have observed parents in how they relate to others, themselves, and our society.
I've had a complete private school education and ended up forced to put my son halfway through public school. We did not have the confidence others we knew of how our peirs went to universities for it was beyond us and we did not know personally what made our children successful yet found ways of following the steps of other examples from as many college graduates I knew personally, to studying how actors ended up getting successful roles, to interviewing company workers in both the public sector, and the private sector, I have came to a conclusion that like military. No matter how confusing the tasks we are given to learn from, they are learning curves that hurt the most and help us mature. We do not get to choose always our own education but those that get to have a much higher responsibility than others to educate.
Personal and Self Sacrifice we witnessed, and still I disect it to this day. But the one major constant I notice is that those that do not know if they admit it, they can point to the best learning situations. Those that are boasters loose the most amount of respect from their pupils. Those who continue seeking eventually fnd their answers.
Being a complete person takes a team effort which both the student and the teacher must do their part. However, personal responsibility of learning lands on the student and if they cheat themselves, and are allowed to, then the responsibility relies on the teacher for not picking up on a cheater. We must find measuring sticks to catch and retrain.
Planet of the apes showed how confusion can ruin it for everyone. So seek to find and listen to past societies. Enjoy planet of the apes, go back and see how we view our past years of history.
