The indoctrination of the low value of their knowledge, and of the superiority of OUR knowledge.
When I was young and went to the village to work it was with these vague fears and misgivings about schooling.
A long while later my fears have proved real. Children of a wise community, deeply versed in animal care and agriculture ... struggle to learn English, and to get a degree which will place them at the lowest echelons of work.
The saddest thing is that they have themselves denied their own wisdom.
(But, to qualify, we also have to act in the present reality in our village. I teach the children English. We ask for help to put the children through nursing. We help organize tutions ... But ... there is a deeper sense of loss of direction.)
