Ten Principles of Education for Slavery

  1. A slave’s education is coercive
  2. The slave is not told why he is being forced to be educated
  3. A slave’s education keeps the slave dependent on the thoughts of others
  4. A slave’s education keeps the slave weak
  5. A Slave’s education prepares him to work for others instead of preparing him to work for himself
  6. A slave’s education neglects the slave’s unique strengths and contributions, developing only what some other institution or group needs him for
  7. A slave’s education is not oriented toward the honor of the slave but the glory of his master
  8. A slave’s education is not under natural authority but is under the arbitrary authority of the self-appointed and self-validating
  9. A slave’s education does not develop the higher virtues of wisdom and justice (for rather obvious reasons)
  10. A slave’s education does not cultivate the qualities of a free person (virtue and honor and all that arises from them)
