What did you learn in school today?

Releyendo “Teaching as a subversive activity” de Neil Postman me encuentro al comenzar  con este poema que tengo que compartir con los lectores de este blog.

image What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
I learned that Washington never told a lie,
I learned that soldiers seldom die,
I learned that everybody’s free,
That’s what the teacher said to me,
And that’s what I learned in school today,
That’s what I learned in school.

What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
I learned that policemen are my friends,
I learned that justice never ends,
I learned that murderers die for their crimes,
Even if we make a mistake sometimes,
And that’s what I learned in school today,
That’s what I learned in school.

What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
I learned our government must be strong,
It’s always right and never wrong,
Our leaders are the finest men,
And we elect them again and again,
And that’s what I learned in school today,
That’s what I learned in school

What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today,
Dear little boy of mine?
I learned that war is not so bad,
I learned about the great ones we have had,
We fought in Germany and in France,
And someday I might get my chance,
And that’s what I learned in school today,
That’s what I learned in school

      Chad;
      Muchas gracias por el video. No sabía que se había hecho una canción.

    Qué gusto encontrar este post. El libro de Neill Postman es una joya de la pasión por enseñar y la curiosidad de aprender. Y la canción siempre me ha fascinado. Desde la Comunidad de maestros ESPURNA hemos creado un club de lectura de temas educativos, en el cual este libro es uno de los destacados. Si me manda su mail, le enviaré una invitación para ser miembro. http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/23798.Educaci_
