"Prohibited Education"

Do you think we need a different kind of education?

Prohibited Education  is a documentary released last August about a fundamental question, what does it mean to educate? As a teacher I have found it extremely interesting to start me thinking about several points of view regarding education.

I am afraid it is long (145 minutes) but it is worth every minute of it. It starts with Plato´s allegory of the cave, which, I hope, many of our students will know thanks to their philosophy lessons, and it goes on to explain the beginnings of education: the documentary bases the roots of education on totalitarian regimes and I must admit I found the whole explanation astonishing, just like many more data presented.

The film´s original language is Spanish ("La educación prohibida"); there are quite a few interviews with school teachers in seven countries in Latin America and Spain who have extremely interesting suggestions and ideas. Anyway, I have embedded the Spanish original version with English subtitles, which, I think, are very good (thus, good reading practice)

Watch the trailer first and I hope you ´ll feel like spending two hours and a half to decide whether to change your idea of what education is.



Let me guide you through the film: watch it trying to find out the answers to the following questions:
  1. when did the current educational system start? what was its objective?
  2. the current educational system doesnt´prepare students for...
  3. what values should be encouraged in the family?
