In Box From a northern politician on the almajiri issue
Regarding your post on running almajiri schools in my state, refer
Ben, you are going an area no Northerner would comment. The truth is that the Northern Oligarchy has a policy in place to ensure that the greater majority of the downtrodden are subjugated to remain so and the only weapon used is the denial of education to their children.
Where however the parents insist on their wards being educated, they are given the right to only read and write but not to reason. With this, the Oligarchs maintain their strangle hold on power and influence without challenge from anyone. Check out the history of education in the North.
That’s why the Emirs took control of education from the beginning and the missionary schools were subsequently taken over from them for the simple fact that education was given to people the system could not control eventually and this must be stopped or the system would crash ultimately. Check the background of the first generation Northern Technocrats. They received missionary education and they challenged the Emirs and the system in the late Sixties, Seventees and Early Eightees.
