ANNE MARIE WATERS ON EDUCATION

” The national curriculum has to change and change drastically. Instead of telling how children how wonderful Islam is, why don’t we tell them how wonderful Britain is? Why don’t we teach children the value of free speech, of liberty, of democracy, and of critical thinking and objective truth? If we are to build a society of intelligence, justice, and freedom, that is exactly what we must do.
For Britain’s education policy is clear and concise – we want British children to be taught how to think, not what to think. Schooling should prepare children for a life of productive self-sufficiency and instil respect for their society, for themselves, and for each other. We want a thinking country, not a nation of zombies. If you want this too, you can vote for it. ”
