"Quangoes of Religiosity" Church of England and its privileged position or its ‘abandonment’ (esp, from: education).#

Jenni will be finding out about the physical and mental changes which take place as children mature into adults – and hearing how these developments create some of the stereotypical teenage behaviour. Including drama: Restless. BBC – BBC Radio 4 Programmes – Woman’s Hour, 15/04/2009 Ref, DVD ‘The Long Childhood’ Bronowski – obviously, science has come a long way, but Bronowski has the art and the emotion, to show the way, or to bring some light; on those particularly perilous years. http://www.bbcshop.com/History/Ascent-Of-Man-DVD/invt/bbcdvd1608

Compulsory Sex Education – Reaction from the young and old (parents) religious fundamentalists who are fighting it on religious grounds – Biblical or Koranic http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/8020480.stm showing "tribal stereotypical  behaviour" (savage science, or, that of – anthropological anomy) in their (children and parental) objections, causing stress and some division in our society through the maintaining of sexual ignorance: the withholding of ‘knowledge’ to children, young people, and the vulnerable, for unforgivable and sometimes wicked – ‘tribal honour’ behavior, superioress and superstitious – ambition/gain. http://www.channel4.com/learning/microsites/L/lifestuff/content/up_close/letstalksex/index.html ‘Sex Education is a Children’s Right’ http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2009/apr/28/sex-education-faith-schools The real ‘hosts’ of wickedness and ignorance – If we know that sex and relationships education of an objective sort improves young people’s health and well-being (and we do) and if we accept that it is the right of the child to receive information of all sorts (which it is) and if we go on to conclude that the responsibility of society is therefore to ensure that all our children receive this entitlement, then why allow state-funded religious schools to do something different? Why in particular, as has been announced today, should the religious character of a school (which may or may not be shared by the school’s pupils or their parents) be allowed to skew the sex and relationships education that children receive?

A wonderful replacement for RE, and most of the time that is wasted with PSHE and RE http://www.independent.co.uk/news/education/education-news/pupils-need-greek-myths-to-stop-english-lessons-from-turning-into-media-studies-542292.html I would include Philosophy and: more of the Classics – Herodotus and Thucydides, so on…

Boarding ‘could transform the lives of some children’  http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/8032961.stm

About luckyme0

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! https://charleslizzy.com/2011/08/06/independent-schools-inspectorate-isi-marketing-spirituality-buzzword-or-maybe-even-for-you-to-shiver-at-the-something/ The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book http://www.bbcshop.com/science+nature/the-ascent-of-man/invt/9781849901154/ with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
