Educando el Mundo - Schooling the World con subtítulos en español

Contribución de Swami B.A. Paramadvaiti al documental Schooling the World de Carol Black

"Escolarizando al mundo", Documental acerca de los efectos de la educación masiva y compulsoria de origen occidental y sus efectos destructivos en culturas milenarias asiáticas.

Si quisieras cambiar una cultura antigua en una sola generación, ¿cómo lo harías? Cambiando la manera en la que sus niños son educados. Estados Unidos sabe esto desde el siglo XIX, cuando forzó a los niños nativos americanos a ingresar en los internados gubernamentales.
Alrededor de todo el mundo hay voluntarios que construyen escuelas en sociedades tradicionales, convencidos de que la escuela es la única manera de conseguir una vida mejor para los niños indígenas. Pero, ¿es esto cierto? ¿Qué ocurre realmente cuando reemplazamos la educación e interpretación del mundo en una cultura tradicional por la occidental?
SCHOOLING THE WORLD toma un reto, a veces divertido, al final profundamente alarmante, sobre los efectos de la educación moderna en las últimas culturas indígenas sostenibles del mundo.

Escolarizar el mundo: La última carga del hombre blanco.
Schooling the World: The White Man's Last Burden.

QUOTATIONS USED IN THE FILM:


“To civilize the Indians…immerse them in our civilization… and when we get them under…hold them there until they are thoroughly soaked.”

– General Richard Pratt, founder of the Carlisle Indian School


“Let all that is Indian within you die.”

– Carlisle Indian School commencement speech


“We must at present do our best to form…a class of persons, Indian in blood and colour…but English in taste, in opinions, in morals, in intellect.”

– Lord Macaulay’s “Minute on Indian Education”


“THE AMERICAN FLAG HAS NOT BEEN PLANTED ON FOREIGN SOIL TO ACQUIRE TERRITORY BUT FOR HUMANITY’S SAKE.”

– William McKinley campaign poster


“School forcibly snatches away children from a world full of God’s own handiwork …It is a mere method of discipline which refuses to take into account the individual…a manufactory for grinding out uniform results. I was not a creation of the schoolmaster: the Government Board of Education was not consulted when I took birth in the world.”

– Rabindranath Tagore, 1927 Nobel Prize Winner for Poetry


“A general State education is a mere contrivance for molding people to be exactly like one another: and as the mold in which it casts them is that which pleases the predominant power in the government…it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by a natural tendency to one over the body.”

– John Stuart Mill, “On Liberty”


“Modernization… proceeds at a limited pace within a society still characterized by traditional low-productivity methods, by the old social structure and values… The population at large must be prepared to accept training for an economic system which increasingly confines the individual in large, disciplined organizations allocating to him narrow, specialized tasks.”

– Walt Rostow, “The Stages of Economic Growth,” 1960


“Our schools are, in a sense, factories, in which the raw materials – children – are to be shaped and fashioned into products… The specifications for manufacturing come from the demands of 20th century civilization, and it is the business of the school to build its pupils according to the specifications laid down.”

– Ellwood P. Cubberly, Dean,

Stanford University School of Education, 1898


“In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands.”

– John D. Rockefeller, General Education Board, 1906


“As the mass of population are uneducated, illiterate, they will remain backward, and follow old and religious superstitions.”

– Ladakhi economics textbook


 “As majority of people are illitrate (sic) and backward, their standard of living is low as compared to their counterparts who are well educated and advanced.”

– Ladakhi economics textbook


“You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination…. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be.”

– Doris Lessing, 2007 Nobel Prize Winner for Literature


“The great purpose of school can be realized better in dark, airless, ugly places. It is to master the physical self, to transcend the beauty of nature. School should develop the power to withdraw from the external world.”

– William Torrey Harris, U.S. Commissioner of Education 1889-1906


“It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom.”

– Albert Einstein


 “Education…makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.”

– Henry David Thoreau


 “Real freedom will come only when we free ourselves of the domination of Western education, Western culture, and the Western way of living.”

– Mahatma Gandhi


 “Education is a compulsory, forcible action of one person upon another. Culture is the free relation of people… The difference between education and culture lies only in the compulsion, which education deems itself in the right to exert. Education is culture under restraint. Culture is free.”

– Leo Tolstoy
