    They are there to obtain one thing a high school degree. My job is to prepare them to pass those SAT tests. I was once teaching comparing and contrasting literature to a student, that felt it was stupid and asked why is he learning this, since he will never use it in life. True, but there are similar types of questions on the SAT, once he passes high school and gets into a good university he can choose what field he wants to further his knowledge in.

    I have never done factory work and i never intend to do it.

    When the boss walks by a group of 4 employees (an NF, an NT, an SP, and an SJ), and says, "Shut up and do what I tell you to do," which one of the employees is going to do it most readily? Which one of those employees is most likely to get a raise in salary then?
    Are you suggesting then that SJ's don't have any inspiration to want to better themselves?
    If my boss ever told me to shut up, i would later on in the day offer to make him a coffee that was laced with laxatives. See, i will and can be the dutiful hard worker, but respect goes 2 ways.

    Definitely if someone can't respect others, how can he demand respect? The guy should NOT be placed in a position of authority.

    But your experience sounds typical of an NT in the educational system.

    Sounds somewhat like my experience, too, and I am no NT, that's for sure.

    I think I was objective and honest. You guys are expressing an emotional reaction rather than refuting what was said with facts. You don't like the idea of "factory work" because you internalize mass societal values; and society says factory workers are of a lower class.

    If it makes you feel better, there are plenty of SJ upper management and execs in companies. In fact most middle/upper management is SJ.


    SJ just happen to make better slaves than other types.

    Edit:

    And getting back to the original subject, public schooling teaches obedience, consistency, and respect for authority; all traits needed for production workers.

    Many leaders of schools use the classical organizational theory of management that proposes a hierarchical top down management approach to organizing and leading. This approach has its roots deeply imbedded in the mechanistic, bureaucratic organizational theories that were endorse by organizational theorists such as Max Weber and Frederick Taylor. This theory of management helped to shape the concepts of efficiency and effectiveness needed to turn the cottage industry of the ninetieth century into the modern factory system of the twentieth century. The adoption of this bureaucratic theory using the Carnegie units of grades and specializations adopted by the modern school system has resulted in the modern factory schools where the product is the student prepared for the work force to fuel the economy. The problem with this organizational theory for schools is that students are not products and donít usually respond positively to a culture that adds to them as if they were a car on an assembly line. Many students fall by the wayside in this factory model as rejects or seconds off the assembly line. When the rejects or second reach a significant proportion of the population the system often switches from the factory model to the prison model and instead of preparing students for the economy we guard them from any influence on the society.
