Glass Ceilings in Education: Breaking Free from Social Restrictions

It’s time to explore the conditioning and glass ceilings that exist within our education system and more prevalently within society as a whole. We will delve into the origins of the education system, its evolution driven by economic and social needs, and the impact it has on individuals and society. We will cover the importance of developing free thinking and individual thought that is not conditioned by social glass boxes and explore ways to break free from its limitations.

The Origins of the Education System

To understand the conditioning and glass ceilings in our education system we must go back to the ancient civilizations. It was during this time that the education system began to take shape, but it was only accessible to the wealthy and well-off individuals in society. The purpose of education was to develop civic life, cultural values, and social norms. However, this is where the problem started – the creation of social values that we take on today ,without consent, condition us to think and act in specific, restricted ways.

The Influence of the Church and Economic Needs

As we move forward in history to the Middle Ages, we see a shift in the driving force behind the education system. The church became a significant player because it required educated individuals who could read, write, and transcribe religious doctrine for dissemination to the aristocratic populace – at a price of course. This need for education was driven by profit, and the church needed individuals capable of copying its teachings accurately. This economic influence continued to shape the education system until the present day.

National Identity and Military Conscription

In the 19th century, the development of a national identity became a driving force in education. The idea of who we are as a nation started to take shape, and military conscription also played a significant role. Educated individuals were needed to join the armies, especially at the officer level, to pass on instructions and commands accurately. The economic and social needs of complex societies further drove the education system to condition the populace, as stability within social structures was crucial for economic prosperity. Chaos is generally bad for business.

Henry Ford and Workforce Preparation

Stepping into the 20th century, we encounter the era of Henry Ford. Ford needed an education system to train European immigrants who worked in his factories. He faced a high staff turnover rate of 87% due to their inability to follow instructions accurately. To address this issue, Ford established an English school to educate these workers and ensure they could carry out their tasks with precision. This example highlights how education became a workforce preparation system, driven by economic needs.

The Problem with the Education System

As someone who has worked in education for most of my life, I have witnessed the flaws in the system. The focus on churning out individuals into an economic system remains prevalent today. However, with the shift towards a knowledge-based economy, we are now selling knowledge rather than physical and mental capabilities. This profit-driven approach to education raises concerns about whether we are adequately preparing students for today’s needs let alone those of the future. When an education system is rated on the profit it generates and the benefit it adds to national GDP figures, we know we are in a certificate mill, grinding out irreverent thinkers.

The Need for a New Education System

To break free from the conditioning and glass ceilings of our current education system, we must shift our focus away from a corporate profit-generating system. We need an education system that prepares us for the next stage of human development, one that goes beyond economic profit and social restrictions. This is where the Life Ninja program comes in. By setting a vision for the future and establishing goals, we can develop the skills necessary to elevate humanity to a higher level of understanding and consciousness.

Embracing Free Thinking and Individual Development

The key to breaking free from the limitations of the education system is to cultivate free thinking and individual development. As students, we must question the purpose and impact of the education system on society. We must strive to understand its role in serving the economy and explore ways to contribute to humanity’s growth and well-being. By thinking outside the glass boxes and glass ceilings imposed upon us, we can collaborate effectively and create a system that benefits all beings on this planet.

It’s time to stop being fleas dancing in a flea circus for corporate amusement. The conditioning and glass ceilings within our education system have restricted our potential as individuals and has further limited our development of a higher conscious society. The focus on economic profit and social restrictions has hindered our growth and limited our ability to think freely. It’s time to recognise these limitations and embrace alternative approaches to education. By doing this we can break free from these constraints. Let us strive to develop free thinking, individual thought, and skills that will contribute to the betterment of humanity. We can create a civilization that harmonizes with the planet and benefits every single being. Join me on this journey to become a Life Ninja and let’s shape the future together.
