Getting into the influence of the "educational system"!

To be honest I can only shake my head SMH at some of the things going on in our educational system.

Teachers are not supposed to fail, or give failing grades to their students even if the students don't do any work, and don't apply themselves, because it might destroy their "self esteem".
What are these so called educators thinking?
That's not building self respect, it's creating monsters who think the world owes them everything while they do nothing.

Then there is the big emphases on rewards to "motivate".
The students who are really into doing their work, get a sticker at the end. BUT the students who don't do their work are given rewards (often much bigger rewards) for every question they answer. Thus they get way more rewards for being difficult than the students who apply themselves to learning.

Again -- it's creating the mentality that the world owes them a living even if they do nothing.

Another problem in all this is students often are not taught to do something simply for the satisfaction of doing necessary tasks and learning tasks well. Too often school work or other essential work is done only for some reason unrelated to the task itself. Thus the task is done with minimal effort -- just enough to get by, to gain the "rewards" or "handouts" promised, rather than seeing value and dignity in the task itself.

Agreed. The devil is one behind all of this for it creates people who hate anything that crosses their will/desires. It brings to mind Ellen White's statement on the antedeluvians in her comments in the SDABC on Genesis 6:11.
They worshipped selfish indulgence,— eating, drinking, merry-making,—and resorted to acts of Violence and crime if their desires and passions were interfered with.

In the days of Noah the overwhelming majority was opposed to the truth, and enamored with a tissue of falsehoods. The land was filled with Violence. War, crime, murder, was the order of the day. Just so will it be before Christ’s second coming (Manuscript 24, 1891).

The bias is so blatant I am amazed at how many people still argue against it. To me there is only one word that describes it: indoctrination.
Well; I certainly can agree with this comment re Cathy G. What a disgusting thing that was. Here in Canada, I dont get a lot of that kind of news, and dont have a TV so I had to google that and look it up. I was amazed. (to put it politely). I also would add that it is my personal opinion that what Carson said about the alleged cause of poverty is also "indoctrination," and so far from reality, that no one is going to be helped if he allows that thought to over-shadow the work he is supposed to be in charge of. Time will tell us more on that detail. I do like one thing Carson has been talking about, and it has to do with increased budgets for training and mentoring that will enable more people to do for themselves, what Carson has done for himself. I just think that that one comment, which the OP of this topic mentions is way too far out in left field. I believe that this kind of comment does not reflect the true causes of poverty.
