Pädagogisches Dilemma – praktisch-kreativ-intelligent gelöst

Westliches Erziehungsmodell: Er zieht, sie schiebt.

 

Ein Eipo-Junge aus West-Neuguinea verspeist genüsslich ein großes Stück Schokolade. Seine jüngere Schwester möchte auch ein Stück davon haben. Sie quengelt, während er sich hartnäckig weigert, ihr etwas abzugeben. Sie fängt an zu weinen, ihr Bruder brüllt.
Aufgrund des Lärms kommt die Mutter herbeigeeilt. Sie erkennt die Geschwisterdynamik und die Lernchance. Schweigend nimmt sie dem Jungen das Stück Schokolade aus der Hand und dem Mund und bricht es in zwei Hälften.

 

Frage: Was tut ein westlicher Mensch – an Stelle der Mutter – als Nächstes?
Antwort: Im Westen schlichtet der Ranghöhere das Dilemma, indem er für das Kind entscheidet, statt es selbsgt entscheiden zu lassen. Traditionell geprägte Eltern stecken die geteilte Schokolade jeweils ihren beiden Kindern zu.  

 

Die Eipo-Mutter gibt ihrem Sohn die beiden Stücke Schokolade zurück, ohne ihn weiter zu instruieren. Der Junge hat nun zwei Teile in je einer Hand und steht vor der Wahl, was er mit beiden Leckerstücken in beiden Händen machen wird. Eine Hand füttert ihn, die andere kann (ab)geben.
Nach der mütterlichen Intervention und angesichts der neuen Gegebenheit entscheidet der Junge, seiner Schwester freiwillig ein Stück Schokolade zu geben. Sie nimmt und isst davon. Ihre Tränen sind schnell getrocknet.

 

Wenn ein Kind mit Knete, Spielsachen oder Essen (nach einer hilfestellenden Zäsur) von selbst teilen lernt, ist die Erfahrung des Teilens aus seinem Inneren aufgestiegen. Auferlegtes oder stellvertretendes Teilen kommt von außen und kann schwerlich den innewohnenden natürlichen Impuls aktivieren.

  UBUNTU: Die afrikanischen Kulturen der Bantu, Zulu, Xhosa prägten den Begriff 'Ubuntu'.
Übersetzt bedeutet Ubuntu: "Ich bin, weil du bist."

 

Ein westlicher Anthropologe prüfte die Kinder eines afrikanischen Stammes mit einem neuen Spiel. Er stellte einen Korb voller Obst und Süßigkeiten unter einen Baum und schlug den Kindern einen Wettlauf vor, "Wer zuerst dort ist, gewinnt alle Leckereien im Korb." Kaum hatte er ihnen das Startsignal gegeben, fassten sich alle Kinder gegenseitig an den Händen. Dann rannten sie gemeinsam zum Baum, um dort die Belohnung miteinander zu verspeisen.
Der verdutzte Wissenschaftler fragte die Kinder: "Weshalb seid ihr zusammen losgelaufen, wo doch jeder die Chance hatte, die Süßigkeiten für sich allein zu gewinnen?"
Ein Mädchen antwortete ihm gelassen: "Ubuntu. Wie kann einer von uns froh sein, wenn alle anderen traurig sind?"

Schlussfolgerung

  • Ein guter Schulabschluss ist kein Indikator für Intelligenz, sondern von guter Anpassungsfähigkeit. Prof. DDr. Gerald Hüther gerald-huether.de (*1951) deutscher Neurobiologe, Professor für neurobiologische Grundlagenforschung, Universität Göttingen, Autor, Quelle unbekannt

 

Einsichten

 

  • Wir werden als Originale geboren, sterben jedoch als Kopien. Edward Young (1683-1765) englischer Dichter, Quelle unbekannt

  • "An­ge­sichts die­ser Dia­gno­se steht fest, dass es mit Schön­heits­ope­ra­tio­nen an un­se­rem Schul­sys­tem nicht getan ist. Viel­mehr ist es ver­gleich­bar mit einem krebs­kran­ken Pa­ti­en­ten, der einer um­fang­rei­chen The­ra­pie be­darf."
    Zehn Prinzipien für eine Bildungs- und Schulreform [paraphrasiert.]
    1. Die in­trin­si­sche Mo­ti­va­ti­on des Kin­des nicht zu zer­stö­ren, son­dern zu pfle­gen.
    2. Kinder in­di­vi­du­ell ler­nen zu las­sen.
    3. Die Welt des Wis­sens nicht ein­fach als Stoff oder Fach zu sehen. Statt um den Stoff geht es um das Ver­ste­hen von Sinn und Sinn­lich­keit der Dinge und der Zu­sam­men­hän­ge die­ser Welt.
    4. Bin­dung: Kin­der und Ju­gend­li­che lernen umso freu­di­ger und leich­ter ler­nen, je stär­ker sie sich in einer Ge­mein­schaft auf­ge­ho­ben füh­len.
    5. Be­zie­hungs- und Ver­ant­wor­tungs­kul­tur an den Schulen schaf­fen (rhe­to­risch und or­ga­ni­sa­to­risch)
    6. Werte und Wert­schät­zung för­dern
    7. Lern­freund­li­che Schul­ar­chi­tek­tur schaffen
    8. Kon­zen­tra­ti­ons­fä­hig­keit trai­nie­ren und pfle­gen
    9. Per­sön­li­che Be­wer­tun­gen von Schü­ler­leis­tun­gen: Ein sorg­sa­mes, auf die in­di­vi­dua­li­tät des Kin­des be­zo­ge­nes Mo­ni­to­ring ersetzt das Zif­fern­sys­tem.
    10. Einführung der Ganz­tags­schu­le.
    "Wer Bil­dungs­ge­rech­tig­keit nicht nur be­schwört, son­dern ernst nimmt, kommt nicht umhin, den schäd­li­chen Ein­fluss man­cher El­tern­häu­ser auf den Lern­er­folg zu ver­rin­gern."

General quotes

Personal avowals

  • I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think. Socrates (469-399 BC) Ancient Greek pre-Christian philosopher

 

  • The crippling of individuals I consider the worst evil of capitalism. Our whole educational system suffers from this evil. An exaggerated competitive attitude is inculcated into the student, who is trained to worship acquisitive success as a preparation for his future career.
    I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals. Article by Albert Einstein (1879-1955) German-born US American theoretical physicist, developer of the theory of general relativity, Nobel laureate in physics, 1921, Why Socialism?, presented by the US American independent socialist magazine Monthly Review No. 1, May 1949, reprinted 1. May 2009

 

  • The best way to fight terrorism is not through guns. It's through pens, books, teachers and schools.
    I am proud to be a girl. We girls can change the world! Malala Yousafzai (*1997) Pakistani human rights and education activist, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 2014, in a conversation with the World Bank, 11. October 2013

 

  • My role as an educator is not to make you feel safe. It is to make you feel safe in your discomfort. Irshad Manji (*1968) Canadian educator, New York University, advocate of a "reformist" interpretation of Islam, author, Twitter comment, 15. February 2016

 

  • Sixty years ago I knew everything;
    now I know nothing;
    education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.
Will Durant (1885-1981) US American historian, philosopher, writer (on behalf of the Rockefeller Foundation), cited in: Book review of "The Age of Voltaire" by Will and Ariel Durant Books: The Great Gadfly, presented by the US American weekly news magazine TIME, 8. October 1965

Former dumbing down agent turned whistleblower

  • I was trained to identify the resistors. The resistors to the sex-ed, drug-ed, alcohol-ed, suicide-ed, death-ed, those good, smart Americans who realize that anything that education hanging off the end of it is probably not what they’re looking for. I was trained to identify those good people, and to go up against them, and actually to go and try to get them to join us through the group process system. Make them feel important, get them on a committee […] and that just blew my mind. Charlotte Iserbyt, US American whistleblower, senior policy advisor of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education und president Ronald Reagan (1981-1984), freelance writer, cited in: article Whistleblower Explains How Education System Targets ‘Resistors’, presented by US American online magazine Waking Times, Isaac Davis, 20. March 2017

 

Recommendation

  • If you are planning for a year, sow rice;
    if you are planning for a decade, plant trees;
    if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.
Chinese proverb

 

Conclusions

  • Everything you've learned in school as "obvious" becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There's not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines. Generalized principles coined by Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) US American engineer, systems theorist, architect, constructor, designer, inventor, futurist, philosopher, author, cited in: John A. Keel, Our Haunted Planet, S. 11, Galde Press, Inc., 2002

 

  • If they have the capacity to think freely and understand these types of things, they're going to be kept out by a very complicated filtering system – which actually starts in kindergarten, I think. In fact, the whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don’t know how to be submissive, and so on – because they are dysfunctional to the institutions. Noam Chomsky (*1928) US American professor emeritus of linguistics, philosopher, cognitive scientist, social activist, author, cited in: article Noam Chomsky: Perpetuating Brainwashing Under Freedom, presented by Quora, Francisco Souza Homem de Mello, 31. March 2013

Challenging a president committing war crimes

Whitewashed gun meme circulating social media: "With guns, you can kill terrorists, with education you can kill terrorism."

  • Drone attacks are fueling terrorism. Innocent victims are killed in these acts, and they lead to resentment among the Pakistani people. If we refocus efforts on education it will make a big impact. Malala Yousafzai (*1997) Pakistani human rights and education activist, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 2014, meeting with the First Couple Barack and Michelle Obama, White House, Washington, D.C., 11.

Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire. William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) Irish poet, playwright, Nobel laureate in literature, 1923

  • For the mind does not require filling like a bottle, but rather, like wood, it only requires kindling to create in it an impulse to think independently and an ardent desire for the truth. Plutarch [Lucius Mestrius Plutarchus] (45/46-120/125 AD) Greek-Roman historian, priest at the temple of Apollon in Delphi, Middle Platonist, biographer, essayist, Moralia by Plutarch, volume 1, ["De auditu", translated "On Listening to Lectures"], Loeb Classical Library, webpage maintained by Bill Thayer, 1927
  • Educating all of our children must be one of our most urgent priorities. We all know that education, more than anything else, improves our chances of building better lives. Nelson Mandela (1918-2013) leading South African anti-apartheid activist, prisoner for 27 years during apartheid, first black president of South Africa (1994-1999), message for the 'Schools for Africa' campaign, Johannesburg, South Africa, 15.

  • Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farmworkers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.

Great Thinkers on Self-Education: John Taylor Gatto, selfmadescholar.com, Jamie, 31. March 2009

  • Whatever an education is,
    ⚑ it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist;
    ⚑ it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges;
    ⚑ it should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life;
    ⚑ it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with;
    ⚑ it should teach you what is important: how to live and how to die.

Enhancing women's education

  • [T]o the best of my knowledge, no war was ever started by women. The education and empowerment of women throughout the world cannot fail to result in a more caring, tolerant, just and peaceful life for all. Aung San Suu Kyi (*1945) Burmese opposition politician, house arrested for 15 of 21 years (1989-2010) for her opposition to the military junta’s seizure, leader of Myanmar’s democracy movement, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1991, open­ing keynote via a videotape, NGO Forum on Women at the Fourth UN World Conference on Women Bei­jing, China, 1995; cited in: Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. jeanbolen.com, US American Jungian analyst, proactive women researcher and supporter, crone, spiritual teacher, author, The Millionth Circle. How to Change Ourselves and The World, Preface, Conari Press, 1st edition 1. September 1999

 

  • Extremists are afraid of books and pens. I want education for the sons and the daughters of all the extremists especially the Taliban. […] The power of education frightens them. They are afraid of women. The power of the voice of women frightens them. […] Education is the only solution. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. Malala Yousafzai (*1997) Pakistani human rights and education activist, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 2014, address at United Nations Youth Assembly, UN headquarters, New York, 12. July 2013, cited in: One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world., presented by "The Express Tribune", 12. July 2013

 

  • Inasmuch as the mind cannot innately discern truth from falsehood, it's only defense is reliance on reason and the intellect. Thus, education is of benefit on many levels. To the unevolved ego, however, the capacity to think is subverted from reason to rationalization in order to justify emotionalised positions. The distortions of truth then tend to fall into stratified levels concordant with the concomitant levels of society. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 255, 2005

 

  • If education is beaten by training, civilization dies. [The lesson of history is that] civilization is a rarity, attained with difficulty and easily lost. C.S. Lewis  (1898-1963) British scholar, novelist

 

 

  • Learning prepares you to cope with the surprises, education prepares you to cope with certainty. There is no certainty.

  • Anyone who tells you that the sole purpose of education is the acquisition of negotiable skills is attempting to reduce you to a productive employee at work, a gullible consumer in the market, and a docile subject of the state. What’s at stake, when we ask what college is for, is nothing less than our ability to remain fully human. William Deresiewicz, Ph.D. (*1964) former US American professor of English, Yale University, social and literary critic, essayist, author, Excellent Sheep. The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life, chapter 5 "What is College For?", S. 79, Free Press, 19. August 2014

 

 

 

  • The book is [ Excellent Sheep ] not about elite higher eduction only, it's not about higher education only, and it's not about America only. This is what education has become and is becoming throughout the world at every level. [...] A lot of people are pissed off about it. And a lot of people want to do something about it. [...] I hope that a generation from now we can look back and say, 'We saw that we had taken a wrong turn [as in rankist meritocraZy, Reaganesque neoliberalist narcissicst logic] and we made a course correction.'

  • The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed a standard citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. H. L. Mencken (1880-1956) US American critic of American life and culture, satirist, journalist, magazine editor, essayist, author

 

  • There is no top. However high you climb, there is always somebody above you.

Englische Texte – English section on Pedagogic

Ubuntu – Shared humanity

The term Ubuntu stems from Bantu, Zulu and Xhosa cultures. It expresses the African philosophy of humaneness. Translated it means "I am what I am because of who we all are."


A Western anthropologist proposed a game to the children in the African Xhosa tribe. He put a basket full of fruit and goodies near a tree and told the young folks that whoever got there first would win the basket. As soon as he finished commanding: "Ready, steady, go!," the children all took each others' hands and ran together. Arrived at the tree they sat down together enjoying their treats.
When the dumbfounded scientist asked them why they had run like they did as one could have had all the sweets for himself a little girl replied:

UBUNTU. How can one of us be happy if all the others are sad?

 

  • A person with Ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, based from a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed. Desmond Tutu (*1931) South African anti-apartheid activist, first black archbishop of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1984, No Future Without Forgiveness, 1999

 

  • Africans have a thing called "ubuntu". It is about the essence of being human, it is part of the gift that Africa will give the world. It embraces hospitality, caring about others, being willing to go the extra mile for the sake of another. We believe that a person is a person through other persons, that my humanity is caught up, bound up, inextricably, with yours. When I dehumanize you, I inexorably dehumanize myself. The solitary human being is a contradiction in terms. Therefore you seek to work for the common good because your humanity comes into its own in community, in belonging. Desmond Tutu (*1931) South African anti-apartheid activist, first black archbishop of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1984

 

  • According to Peter de Jager, the Zulu greeting Sawubona means 'I see you' and the response, 'Ngikhona' means 'I am here'. As always when translating from one language to another, crucial subtleties are lost. Inherent in the Zulu greeting and our grateful response, is the sense that until you saw me, I didn't exist. By recognizing me, you brought me into existence. A Zulu folk saying clarifies this, "Umuntu ngumuntu nagabantu", meaning, "A person is a person because of other people." Bridget Edwards, blog writer, Namaste and Sawubona, a Zulu greeting, 28. April 2014

As a result of your teaching excellence over the last three or four years, we have come to the conclusion that you are the best teachers in this school. And as a special reward to you, we have identified three classes each with 30 of the brightest students in this school — the students with the highest IQs. And we're going to assign them to you to teach for the entire year.
We don't want to be accused of discrimination, so it's very important that you do not tell these children in any way that you know that they've been selected for a screened class. And second of all, we're not going to tell their parents, because we don't want to cause any difficulties there. I expect you to teach exactly the same way you normally do and use exactly the same curriculum, and I expect you to get very good results with these students.

 


 Joseph Martin Kraus as a student at Erfurt university, 1775

At the end of the school year, these students led not only the school, but the entire school district in academic accomplishment.

 

Calling the three teachers into his office, the principal said:

Well, you've had a very good year.
Yes we have [...] it was so easy, replied the teachers. These children were so easy to teach. They were so eager to learn; it was such a pleasure to teach them.
Well, maybe I'd better tell you the truth, said the school principal.
This has been an experiment, and those 90 children were chosen out of the school population at random. When I assigned them to your class at the beginning of the year, I had no idea what their IQs were at all.
That's incredible! exclaimed the teachers.
But how could it be that they scored so high? They did so well. They got such good grades. Ah hah! Yes! It must be because we are such excellent teachers.

 

To which the principal said,

And I think I should also tell you the other side of the experiment. At the beginning of the school year, we put all the teachers' names in a hat, and yours were the first three names that were drawn.

 

The principal was Robert Rosenthal, the US American professor of psychology at the University of California, Riverside. He has studied the effect of teachers' expectations on students (known as the so called Pygmalion Effect) and took a special interest in the role of the self-fulfilling prophecy (coined by sociologist Robert K. Merton) in everyday life and in laboratory situations.

 

Note: ► Consistently low expectations lead to a decrease in performance.
The Golem effect is the opposite of the Pygmalion effect.
