“The Collectivist Control of Education and
What Education Would be Like in a Free Society”
Sunday January 24, 2016
A talk by Marsha Familaro Enright, educational entrepreneur, author of the last chapter, “Liberating Education” in Common Ground on Common Core, editor of Ayn Rand Explained, Lead Developer and Instructor, The Great Connections Seminar for High School and College Students, and Founder and President of Council Oak Montessori School in Chicago for over 26 years.
Many of us are aware of the continuing control of Academia by the collectivists, and how they are using education to transform our young people into sheepish conformists to their agenda. Ms. Enright will discuss the insidious ways in which they achieve these aims, analyzing the psychology of it. As a tonic to that gloomy situation, she will project the surprising picture of what education could be like in a fully free society, with some ideas as to how to get there
Public education costs most of us a pretty penny in taxes, yet yields poor outcomes:
- For our own children, driving many of us to pay two times; in taxes and private school tuition;
- Especially for children of the less well-off, who can’t escape to private schools;
- For too many, in the lack of crucial knowledge, reasoning power, motivation, and work skills.
As technology drives the job market, requiring higher and higher skills, the situation is only getting worse – more and more individuals are being left behind, unable to adequately and honorably support themselves.
- What’s driving this decline – the historical, economic, psychological and political reasons;
- The bright spots of hope and the real reasons for optimism in our current educational situation;
- The surprising picture of what education could be like in a freer society, with some ideas as to how to get there;
- What you can do to hasten this better future for you and your children.
Come to hear and meet Marsha as well as other concerned parents, taxpayers and civic minded individuals about what can be done to create a better future in education.
Marsha Familaro Enright is an author and speaker on, among other topics, human development, psychology, and creativity. Many of her interviews are available to watch online.
She is the creator of The Great Connections Summer Seminar, a week-long, liberal arts course for students 16 and up, focuses on classic texts across the ideological spectrum, including those of the philosophy, economics, politics, and history of freedom. Its evidence-based discussion principles significantly increase student reasoning power, as well as collaborative work skills. The program has a transformative effect on most students who attend, radically increasing their autonomy. Learn more at www.thegreatconnections.org.
