As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
I began to think about the second part of this quote and why the writer would think about the creation of the school boards in this sense. As someone who is studying the field of education (Human Development), I began to think that the field of teaching and learning is pointless. Then I thought about my views from the parents perspective, who basically had to fight her way through to ensure that her child received access to education, through the lens of equity, and also the fact that sometimes we don't even agree with what is being taught in the classrooms, because if you think about it, the curriculum is a political document. Where the views of the Government of the day, as well as attempts to re-make, re-work and instill a sense of nationalism, and also the teacher will use these documents to teach what is important to them. Of course my thoughts vary according to subjects, as Math, Science, or technical skills that require the teachings of skills, more than developing social, political views. We can even think of the quote through a historical lens. How have school boards repressed the rights of specific populations historically? How have they empowered the rights of specific populations?
