Problem

Uncritical preservation of the status quo

Nature:
Educational systems tend to shape the individual's internalized value system in such a way as to make him or her an uncritical preserver of society in static relations with other nations and cultures; they fail to emphasize the increasingly interdependent relationship of nations and cultures and thereby reinforce the status quo. The superficial coverage of other cultures tends only to relate to the life styles or ethics of the individual's own culture, so that no common understanding is formed or perpetuated. Individuals' conception of the common goals and the common journey of humanity into the future are thus disorientated.
