Disabling as well as Unsustainable

Production of knowledge and socio-economic development is what schooling system we have today accomplishes. However, the point is that school encourages us to perceive the structure of hierarchy in our society such as carrot and stick rules by teachers as well as high number of failures schools want to happen for its limited space upward. That is because in a capitalist society only a small handful of highly specialized people manage the economy and running of state. There will also be workers and technicians who are differently layered in accordance with their roles in society. Therefore, schooling causes us to revere a system run lopsided, making people always vulnerable to their disadvantage by that system itself which apparently hopes to do good for them.

Therefore, the knowledge produced by the modern schooling is creating divisions and competitions among us. It damages traditional values which integrate communities such as helpfulness, cooperation, and honesty. Another thing is the importance of the role of money is exaggerated in order to fit into the materialistic society. Finding money is not easy and thus people use unethical and dishonest means to improve their producer surpluses which affect the consumers. Today almost every food we eat and every commodity we buy is adulated in one way or another because of unethical businesses which are hard to control.

People above will never learn that some people become incapacitated because of the system they insist. That’s one reason why we are having wars and natural disasters as institutions make us to rely on them. The society being created through our modern schooling is not sustainable any longer.
