Abstract

In his new book "No Future: Are we transporting our children on a steam engine to virtual reality?", when criticising the current, very conservative Czech educational system, Bob Kartous points out that it has its origins in church authoritarianism. In the book, he talks about his grandmother, born in 1921, who was forced to leave school at the age of 10 to serve the rich and was oppressed, semi-illiterate and uneducated. Jan Culik contrasts this with the life story of his own grandmother, who was born in 1900, was also discriminated against because she was a woman, but she managed to graduate in business management and set up a highly successful business. What caused the absolute difference in these life stories? This is the topic of this discussion, which includes video testimony of Jan Culik's grandmother, recorded in 1994, when she was 94. The interview was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from 1st November, 2019.
