Aldous Huxley's Brave New World explains how our Education Establishment creates illiteracy

An interesting new look at Aldous Huxley’s most famous book. 

All those famous scenes of embryos in glass jars were not about the industrial technology but about a very simple gimmick unseen at the center of the process. Something is not there. Something the organism desperately needs. And this deprivation is the gimmick that is replicated billions of times in our elementary schools, where children are not given the information they need to be readers.

NB: In his 1984 book, Samuel Blumenfeld noted: “Functional illiteracy is a result of the way we actually teach children to read in our schools, for our teachers today, whether they know it or not, have been deliberately trained to produce functional illiteracy.”
