A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #143
Early on in your education you are socialized to understand the need to support the power structure, primarily corporations— the business class. The lesson you learn in the socialization through education is that if you don’t support the interest of the people who have wealth and power, you don’t survive very long. You are just weeded out of the system or marginalized.
– from the chapter “Beyond a Domesticating Education: A Dialogue” in Chomsky on MisEducation by Noam Chomsky, edited by Donald Macedo
