After the great consequences we´re facing in my country, Argentina, due to the different changes the current goverment has done in the education system, i feel the urgent need of sharing my point view.
For thos who don´t know, most kids finish school in very low learning conditions, and then the system pretends high school level to do magic with them.
Teenagers can fail as many times as they want, as they have 3 oportunities during the year to pass the exams, they even have support teachers for free who help them studying the subjects they own.
They can also skip as many clases they want without any consquences.
Summarising, the hole system has been planned to make their life easy. And there´s a lot of verbal and phisycal violence between classmates and from classmates to teachers.
So, i think it´s time to share the problem so the world knows what´s going on here. I´m worried about my society and my future as an english professor.
I guess it´s easier and pratical for goverments to grow ignorance than active members of a democratic society.
Watching the constant lost of values,
What changes have left in us,
Masses worshiping ignorance,
Masses consumers of lies,
That is what i see,
The consequences of our “democracy”
Twisted words, whispered to our ears,
Trying to convince us that blindness will make us free
Twisted words, are what i hear from different fronts,
All disposed to justify their own needs,
We are hostages of their deceits
Fighting every day for a better place to live,
Trying to feed minds with knowdlege and respect,
Getting nothing in return
But cold looks from empty souls
I work for a few coins
While others get it all for free
Sell your freedom and you´ll be fed
Sell your freedom and become a marionette
Those will be the ones who´ll rule our destiny
Those will be the builders of our own ruin
Wake up and shout!
Wake up and fight!
When twisted words come,
Keep your conscience alive.
