Passage

1 am not in favor that the cultural perspective of education should be ignored. On the other hand, I think, it is necessary to the production of the sort of adult who best fits the modern world. But I think, what is important in cultural education should be conveyed, at any rate in the early stages, by methods far more attractive than now used. History and geography should be taught at first by means of the cinema. When taught this way, they will give pleasure; attention will be prompt and therefore the impression will be less temporary. Despite reforming movements, there is still among educators a feeling that what is enjoyed without effort cannot have much educational value. It would have made children aware of the manners and customs of tribes and nation’s parts utterly remote from their own. Education conducted on these lines would do more than many boors to cure provincialism in space and to more children realize that actual human beings with actual feelings can be outwardly very different from the people among whom they, but inwardly composed of the same human material. A Zulu would not look hinky remote or savage but one like themselves.
