    Like to share. Good point on how the all powerful state wants to 'raise' your child. Parents role has been diminished.

    Is your objection against the content? I think its a required education. Families dont want to talk about it most of the time and children, especially boys, are trying to learn it from unhealthy sources. Its a good idea to do it in the schools with a scientific methodology.

    Ideally it should be parents, (relatives, wider community) teaching the basics to their child within an Islamic framework. I wouldnt trust the government given its record of disregarding parents wishes, concerns (which is the video talks about). They are more interested in their 'social engineering' projects. We can see the results.

    So no I'd rather take responsiblity as a parent than pass it on to the government.

    I am confused. Is fatherhood dying out a bad thing?




    I just received this in my email (today actually):

    The power of motherhood

    Assalamualaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    A mother is such a strong personality, who not only nurtures child’s life but also empowers the child with excellence and can prepare the child for upbringing of the future generations in the best way possible, Insha Allah.

    And there is no doubt that one of the powerful individuals on the face of this earth is the Mother. Even the utterance of a mother can change a child’s destiny, elevate child’s confidence and strength to an extend that will drive the child to achieve any greatness in both the worlds. We see in history many righteous and amazing mothers brought up their children with excellence without even having financial and other resources at hand.

    Rabiah al-raai one of the biggest scholars of Islam whose father was in the army of the son of Abnan ibn affan and he used last with the army for years. He had a son and once, before leaving with the army he gave his wife, the mother of Rabiah al-raai 30,000 coins and asked her to look after the family as it may take a long time for him to return.



    As you can see in Islam the emphasis on the motherhood as superior three times over the father. So why is fatherhood dying out...even in Islamic country? Is losing fatherhood really that bad? I mean new generation boys learn very well that their role as parent is not that valued and if the government can provide programs for the children and the mother couldn't do it..why not?

    Meaning homeschooling your kids? That is what I did. A religious private school is another option. No reasonable person would send their kids to government schools, so I couldn't care less what they teach in government schools.

    Wa Salam. Could you expand the bolted part more? Have you ever tried to teach your children how the sexual intercourse is made? Ofcourse it is theorically possible but I guess the number of parents who could do it professionally is not high.

    Social engineering is always done by the governments everywhere not only in this case. The question is whether it is for a good and acceptable purpose. As I said the content should be kept wihtin the scientific boundaries. Islam does/can not contradict with science.

    Yes its not ideal but its a good idea. I think its important take a pro active role in educating their kids rather than leave it in the hands of the state. We all know what the state is capable of.

    Syria, Gaza and the Criminalisation of Islam

    I now understand why many Americans have a wary attitude towards state power.

    British perspective.



    This man was NOT popular with the teaching profession during his time but his predictions have been largely proven right.

    Blurb

    Class War&' (2002) was Chris Woodhead's verdict on the systemic failures within the British Education system and a bold agenda for reform. 'A Desolation of Learning' is a retrospective on the 8 years since he resigned as Chief Inspector of Schools amidst a flurry of controversy over his views on the importance of a strong and politically independent schools inspectorate. - Are our schools any better? - Have standards improved? - What are the key areas he would target for reform today?

    Woodhead argues that the Labour administration has wrongly shaped expectations and policy based on a misguided and questionable vision of a social utopia and a misguided linking of educational attainment and economic well-being. Political pressure has resulted in the emasculation of organisations like OfSTED and the National College for School Leadership, whose remit is reduced to peddling ministerial enthusiasms.

    Woodhead argues that we need: 1) independent school headteachers to assert their independence; 2) the Conservative party to find its voice and generate momentum for change; 3) schools to be free of bureaucratic constraint, and parents to be empowered, via the implementation of a voucher scheme, so that a genuine educational market may be established in Britain.

    Yes whats so hard about it? Its a parental responsiblity, better you teach it than some random stranger, there are plenty of good teaching materials out there. And what makes you think teachers can do a better job? (I remember it, one session and that was that, guess it could of been worse).

    And no Id rather the state stay away from 'social engineering' for a glorious 'utopia' (now they want to target sex education at primary children) and instead focus on the job of governing.
