Education and jobs.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

To date a good education has meant the choice of a “good” job and now the catchphrase in the western world is “A good education for all means a “good” job for all.” However, when all are educated there will not be “good” jobs for all. Thus, we would have come full circle and, thus, we would have made no progress.


About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    Interesting on the “good” jobs point. Gert Biesta writes of such things … what is this good education that the standardised testing is supposed to provide? What is “good”? I suspect that to come to understand this is an impossibility for a world of bureaucracy, hierarchies and money!

      Education as a necessity is only a point of view and only applies in a superficial sense in the climate humans have created. There are many completely successful people, male and female, with no “formal” education. The best teacher is life.
