When from children you take away their culture, language and tradition,
these values taught by their parents , grand parents, ancestors; these very building blocks that make a being
part of a community, it is their Heart that you rip apart.
The education system that has become the norm in nowadays world is so much lacking spirit that The Earth
has become a graveyard where most of us don't know anymore how to take part and sustain Life's essence.
Schooling the world
If you wanted to change an ancient culture in a generation, how would you do it? You would change the way it educates its children.
The U.S. Government knew this in the 19th century when it forced Native American children into government boarding schools. Today, volunteers build schools in traditional societies around the world, convinced that school is the only way to a 'better' life for indigenous children. But is this true? What really happens when we replace a traditional culture's way of learning and understanding the world with our own? SCHOOLING THE WORLD takes a challenging, sometimes funny, ultimately deeply disturbing look at the effects of modern education on the world's last sustainable indigenous cultures.
