"Old School" or Traditional Education.

Dean Gotcher

Traditional education or what is sometimes called "old school" is structured  upon the father's/Father's "top-down," "do right-not wrong" authority system, engendering a Patriarchal paradigm (a respect, honor, and obey authority way of feeling, thinking, acting, relating with "self," others, and the world, and responding to authority in the next generation of citizens) where the children or next generation of citizens humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their "self" in order—as in "old world order"—to do the father's/Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth, engendering little if any 'change' in culture.

"Old School" or Traditional Education
1. preaching commands and rules to be obeyed as given,
teaching facts and truth to be accepted as is, by faith,
discussing any questions those under authority have,
at the discretion of the one in authority:

    a.  the one in authority has time,
    b. those under authority are able to understand, and
    c. those under authority are not questioning, 
          challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking

2. rewarding or  
those under authority who are doing right or obeying,
to encourage them to continue doing right and obeying,
3. correcting or
those under authority who are doing wrong or disobeying,
to encourage them to do right and not disobey,
4. casting out or
any under authority who are questioning, challenging,
defying, disregarding, attacking authority.

"Old school" or traditional education (curriculum) is structured or patterned after the father's/Father's authority, engendering a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the next generation of citizens. "Old school" or traditional education is not the same as laissez faire or transitional and "new world order" or transformational education, where in laissez faire the students do pretty much what they want without direction, with the "educator" acting more as a "baby sitter" than anything else, and in transformational education the students are programed to question, challenge, defy, disregard, attack authority. Home schooling  (in loco parentis) can be any of the patterns of education from "old school" (Patriarchal), to laissez faire (Matriarchal), to transformation (Heresiarchal) in paradigm, depending upon which curriculum the parents use. Curriculum, as Paradigm, is a political system, affecting how the next generation feel, think, and act toward authority.
