A Doris Lessing quote - Eng/中文

Filed under: GeneralFerenc | 12/25/2013 @ 7:15 am (Views: 3447)

I’ve just read this quote and I searched for the Mandarin translation. I don’t link the source (of the translation) this time.

“Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: ‘You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system.
Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself — educating your own judgements. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being moulded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society.”
― Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook

“你们中那些更有活力和个性的人将被鼓励离开,自己教育自己 — 教育你自己的判断。你们中留下的人必须时时刻刻、永远记者,你们正被改造成为能够融入这个社会的狭隘、独特的需求”

    I only read the English version, and I have to say that I agree with her. I always tell my students that I (their teacher) do not know everything and I also make mistakes. I am only there to teach them my learning strategies and some specific methods for getting more information. I am more like a facilitator for their learning.
