Vicki Dunne wants no more kids learning

By GnT 10 February 2007 25

I could not believe this quote from our shadow education minister Vicki Dunne when I read it in the Canberra Times this morning:

“We need less of kids going out and finding things out for themselves. We need more inculcation of knowledge.”

(Unfortunately I can’t find an online link)

So, don’t bother teaching kids how to research or learn things from the world, just sit them in a classroom where they can rote learn from a book.

She goes on to say that teachers are to blame for this travesty of kids learning.

And I thought the federal libs were bad!

What’s Your opinion?

If you aint happy with it AD, there’s always the option for you of Chavez’s leftist utopia.

Else you become a mindless zombie mall-crawler with your pants around your pubes and a pair of glasses that makes you look like a bee, purchasing the ‘latest’ fashions with all of the rest of their zombie kin.

No AD,

put simply (if you are addressing my comment),if you can’t write and read then you can’t put across whatever message you may have in a logical and coherant way.

Nothing wrong with thinking outside the square and questioning the norms, but you still need the basic building blocks of education to be able to do this.

I think you’re allowed to develop freedom of thought once you can express it clearly. If you don’t have the means to express your thoughts clearly (which DOES require some fairly tight guidelines), then you can think anything you like, but you won’t be able to express those thoughts in a way that anybody else will be able to understand. Which means the fascist thought police win again!
