Qui som

L’AMPA de l’Escola Pam i Pipa és l’entitat sense afany de lucre que agrupa els pares i mares de la nostra escola. El seu objectiu fonamental és el de contribuir a la millora de l’ensenyament que reben els nostres fills i filles. El seu funcionament es basa en el diàleg i en la col.laboració amb els diversos sectors de la comunitat educativa.

• L'AMPA és el principal interlocutor que tenen els mestres i l’Equip Directiu de l’Escola per a tractar els temes que afecten a tot el col.lectiu de famílies.

• Ens permet com a pares el reflexionar i opinar sobre el funcionament quotidià de l’escola.

• Administra i gestiona els recursos que tots plegats aportem com a associats.

• Intenta oferir els serveis més adients a les circumstàncies i a les necessitats de cada moment.

Recorda que a l'AMPA hi ha lloc per a tots i totes, que com més siguem, més aportacions i serveis podrem oferir.

Informa't parlant amb qualsevol de nosaltres. Participa-hi!

Harvard, MIT and socialization through education

There is a sharp difference between Harvard and MIT. Although one could safely characterize MIT as a more rightist institution, it is much more open than Harvard. There is a say around Cambridge that captures this difference: Harvard trains the people that rule the world; MIT trains those who make it work. As a result, there is much less concern with ideological control at MIT, and there is more space for independent thinking. This doesn’t mean that MIT is a hub of political activism. It still falls under an institutional role of avoiding a good part of the truth about the world or about society. Otherwise, it couldn’t survive very long if it taught the truth.

The lesson you learn in the socialization through education is that if you don’t support the interests of the people who have wealth and power, you don’t survive very long [example]. You are just weeded out of the system or marginalized. And schools succeed in the indoctrination of the youth by operating within a propaganda framework that has the effect of distorting or suppressing unwanted ideas and information. Facts that are inconvenient to the doctrinal system are summarily disregarded as if they do not exist. They are just suppressed.

If you are a teacher and you show too much independence and question the code of your profession too often, you are likely to be weeded out of the system of privilege. You have to keep quiet and instill your students with the beliefs and doctrines that will serve the interests of those who have real power. But schools are by no means the only instrument of indoctrination. Let’s take what we are fed by television. We are offered to watch a string of empty minded shows that are designed as entertainment but function to distract people from understanding their real problems or identifying the sources of their problems.
