Monoculture is destructive.
In agriculture and in education.
Industrial agriculture, built around monoculture, is falling apart, with an ever increasing need for pesticides and other ‘treatments’ to keep it in place, with farm workers suffer the effects of pesticides and poor wages, and consumers suffer ill health and malnutrition.
Industrial schooling, built around a monoculture of standardised schooling is becoming increasingly broken, with an ever increasing need for toxic controls, monitoring and ‘treatments’, while teachers suffer from work overload and job despair, and the consumers (students) suffer with boredom, mental health issues, suicide, lack of critical thinking and creativity.
